Epic Games and People Can Fly have announced that the Warsaw-based team will return to its original name, logo, and roots as an independent game studio.
Ownership of the company has returned to the local leadership that reflects the team’s desire to create their own games. Under the ownership of Epic Games, the studio was known as Epic Games Poland. While under that name, the studio released Gears of War: Judgement, and Bulletstorm.
People Can Fly will continue to be lead by studio director Sebastian Wojciechowski, and the studio is currently working on projects that use Epic’s Unreal Engine 4.
“We, as a People Can Fly team, are extremely excited about new possibilities ahead of us,” said Wojciechowski. “We’re going to work on a new game, while continuing to partner with Epic and use UE4. We’re grateful to Tim and the whole Epic team for our long and successful collaboration.”
Epic Games Founder and CEO Tim Sweeney said, “We’ve been honored to work with this brilliant group of programmers, artists and designers throughout their history: First as a partner using the Unreal Engine, then as a studio within Epic, and now once again as an independent company.”
