It’s turning out to be a bumpier road than expected for high-profile iPad game Infinity Blade: Dungeons.
The game, which was previewed onstage by Epic Games as part of Apple’s debut of the third-generation iPad last year, now faces further delay following the closure of Impossible Studios, the team put in charge of the project.
Epic today said that it’s closing the 6-month-old studio and laying off its team, a move that means another delay for the unreleased game.
“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,” Epic Games founder Tim Sweeney said in a post. “It was a bold initiative and the Impossible folks made a gallant effort, but ultimately it wasn’t working out for Epic.”
