    Epic Games saves Big Huge Games! (UPDATE: the studio is closed)

    Epic will hire as many Big Huge employees as it can and until a new studio is set up in Maryland, some of them will work as contractors at the Epic HQ.

    Once again, Big Huge Games dodges destruction!
    Now let's imagine an Amalur sequel built on UE4.

    Or even better, a new Rise of Nations. They only need to rescue Bryan Reynolds from Zynga!

    ------------

    8 months later: We’re closing Impossible Studios.

    Nice. Albeit I haven't finished it yet, I could go for some more Amalur. Maybe with Epic behind the studio, EA might buy the IP from RI and get them working on it.

    I've been wanting a proper sequel for 9 years, but it'll never happen.

    I can't imagine Epic wanting to bankroll an RTS game, or have they changed their tune recently?

    I don't see why Epic wouldn't. If there's a fan base and want, no reason not to.

    We are missing the point though in this thread.

    Epic Huge Games?

    Big Epic Games?

    Big Huge Epic?

    Epic Games Big?

    Epic Big Games?
    Powered by Steam. And biscuits. I'm also a twit and dabble in creative writing.

    They should relocate to Liverpool and call themselves Proper Big Massive Fuckoff Games.
    Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

    Turbine and Avalanche set up job fairs for 38's employees, and Zenimax is also hiring.

    Agreed. RTS is primarily a PC genre, and PC gamers are filthy pirates who must not be allowed to shoot dudes with their bros.

    Don't Epic usually release most of their stuff for PC? Aside from Gears obviously, because MS want to use that to promote the 360.

    I'm not sure what they've done recently apart from UT3 and Gears of War.

    I'm pretty sure they're working on Fortnite but the fact that they didn't give much details about it (and possibly not releasing it for the PC) bums me out.


    On topic, now. Considering they hired the devs that makes RTSes and Amalur, do they actually have plans make to those kinds of games?
