"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," Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney said.
Studio director Sebastian Wojciechowski will continue to head up People Can Fly, and will continue to work with Epic, while also working on something completely new. "We, as a People Can Fly team, are extremely excited about new possibilities ahead of us," he said.
"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."
