You know one of iOS’ most anticipated games? Well, it’s the Infinity Blade series and its soon to be successor, Infinity Blade Dungeons, which is no longer going to be released on time. Epic Games, the mobile gaming company who own the Infinity Blade series, have shut down Impossible Studios and have currently put Infinity Blade Dungeons on indefinite hold.
Reports come in from Epic Games founder Tim Sweeney:
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.
-Tim Sweeney, Founder, Epic Games
Unfortunately Infinity Blade Dungeons has been delayed for nearly a year now, it was at first expected to be released at Apple’s iPad event during October 2012. Epic Games have lost most of their Senior Staff and are currently experiencing many issues in their company. Many fans say if Epic Games had given the development to Chair, as they had done in previous games, the game should have been released a long time ago.
