Epic Games' latest addition to their network is Impossible Studios, a Maryland-based development team. Impossible consists of former employees of Big Huge Games, makers of RTS and role-playing titles like Rise of Nations, Catan, Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

The studio's first project is the touch-based RPG Infinity Blade: Dungeons for iOS. It's being developed with Epic and ChAIR in Impossible's Maryland location.

"Epic Games has truly embraced this stellar collection of developers who were displaced by the closing of Big Huge Games," said studio director Sean Dunn. "They have looked after us with complete care, giving us all the tools and resources we need to make a lot of gamers happy."

"We were so glad we could help keep this great team together, and we’re lucky to have them," said Epic Games President Dr. Michael Capps. "At the time, I said that finding a full team of superstars was 'impossible' and apparently the name stuck! 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 joins Epic's growing group, which also includes their Cary, North Carolina-based HQ, ChAIR, People Can Fly, Epic Games Korea and Epic Games Japan.
