*Note this doesnt have anything to do with gears, but I still thought it merited a post and since this is the most active part of the forum, it's here.
As you may or may not be aware 38 Studios and its subsidiary Big Huge Games had all their staff laid off and subsequently closed. But on Wednesday the ex-BHG leadership team contacted Epic saying they wanted to start a new company and keep together some of the key talent displaced by the layoff, and hoped that they could use an Epic IP as a starting point for a new game. Coincidentally Epic had spent the morning discussing how they wanted to build even more successful projects with their growing team, but they would need an infusion of talent to do it.
So Epic is starting a new studio built from the old team of BHG and as soon as they can, are going to try to get people working down here at Epic headquarters in Cary, NC as contractors. Obviously there are still many points to work out, but hey we could be seeing another "EPIC" game sometime soon.
