Big Huge Games Is Gone, Long Live Epic Baltimore

Our week-long gaming love-in got off to an early start over the weekend as Epic announced that they would be working with former employees at the defunct Big Huge Games to build a studio up in Baltimore. Epic, which is down in North Carolina, was in the process of discussing some of the ways that they could expand their staff to work on upcoming projects and with the dissolution of 38 Studios and Big Huge Games, the Gears of War folks saw an opportunity to get an influx of talent while doing some good for the displaced employees.

Mike Capps, President of Epic described the new undertaking as an “impossible studio” and there are still a lot of logistics to getting things up and running, but along with Zynga, Zenmiax, and other studios on the East Coast, it’s great to see a lot of the folks without jobs finding a new place to ply their game making wares going forward.
