In a heartwarming move, Epic Games have reached out to the majority of the staff affected by the closure of Big Huge Games and scooped them up, to establish a new Baltimore studio and keep the team together. “On Wednesday, the ex-BHG leadership team contacted us,” said Epic president Mike Capps. “They wanted to start a new company and keep together some of the key talent displaced by the layoff, and hoped that they could use an Epic IP as a starting point for a new game.”

“In one of life’s coincidences, Epic’s directors had spent the morning discussing how we’d love to build even more successful projects with our growing team, but that we’d need a dramatic infusion of top talent to do so. Which, we all knew, was impossible. So now we’re planning to start an impossible studio in Baltimore.” Wonderful.
