Big Huge Games returns as Impossible Studios9 Aug 2012
You may remember developer Big Huge Games being caught in the rapid downfall of Rhode Island-based 38 Studios. Big Huge was the studio 38 had taken over, and Kingdoms of Amalur was adapted from a fantasy RPG project Big Huge was working on. When 38 Studios collapsed under the weight of Curt Schilling’s hubris, it looked like Big Huge would be crushed too.
Let’s be honest though, that’s quite a boring name for a game developer. Sure, Baltimore makes you think of John Waters and The Wire, but what you really need is a name that can inspire a logo of a winged bear roaring on top of a moon. That’s why Big Huge Games/Epic Studios Baltimore is now ‘Impossible Studios’.
“At the time, I said that finding a full team of superstars was impossible, and apparently the name stuck,” says Epic president Michael Capps.
Impossible’s first project will be the iOS title Infinity Blade: Dungeons.
