Epic Games Closing Impossible Studios, Putting Infinity Blade: Dungeons ‘On Hold’

Impossible Studios, the developers behind Infinity Blade: Dungeons, is being shut down, Epic’s Tim Sweeney announced today.

The announcement came in the form of an open letter posted by Sweeney on Epic’s website:

We’re closing Impossible Studios.

When former members of Big Huge Games approached Epic last year, we saw the opportunity to help a great group of people while putting them to work on a project that needed a team. It was a bold initiative and the Impossible folks made a gallant effort, but ultimately it wasn’t working out for Epic.

In addition to providing Impossible Studios employees with 3 months of severance pay, we’ll be giving the team the opportunity to form a new company with the Impossible Studios name and the awesome Impossibear logo.

This means that Infinity Blade: Dungeons is now on hold as we figure out the future of the project.

Impossible Studios was formed a mere 8 months ago, after Big Huge Games—makers of Rise of Nations—closed down in May 2012.
