Infinity Blade: Dungeons, the third game in Epic's popular iOS franchise, is being put "on hold," as its developer--Impossible Studios--is being closed. Impossible was made up of former members of Big Huge Games, which shut down after the collapse of Big Huge Games last year. "Epic Games has truly embraced this stellar collection of developers who were displaced by the closing of Big Huge Games," said Impossible studio director Sean Dunn said in August. "They have looked after us with complete care, giving us all the tools and resources we need to make a lot of gamers happy."
Epic Games founder Tim Sweeney said that their partnership was ultimately not "working out for Epic," and that the studio would be closed. "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," Sweeney added.
