Epic Games has announced a new development studio based in Maryland, US called Impossible Studios. This new studio is comprised out of former Big Huge Games employees – the now closed studio behind Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning.

“Epic has truly embraced this stellar collection of developers who were displaced by the closing of Big Huge Games,” said Impossible studio director Sean Dunn.

“We were so glad we could help keep this great team together, and we’re lucky to have them,” added Epic president Michael Capps. “Pairing the imagination and experience of Impossible with Epic’s technology, IP and resources makes for a business greater than the sum of its parts.”

Impossible Studios’ first task is a collaboration with Chair, another Epic subsidiary, on the iOS game Infinity Blade: Dungeons, a sort of prequel to the Infinity Blade games. It is still unclear if the new studio will be working exclusively on mobile games, or will join Epic in making triple-A titles in the future.
