Shall be renamed "Dude Huge Games"
This is just too awesome for words. Michael Capps, president of Epic Games, made an announcement on their blog that they just hired a huge chunk of the Big Huge Games team. Apparently Epic's directors had been talking about more projects and a bigger team, and needing top talent, so the business reached a hand out to the refugees of the 38 Studios collapse. Nothing has been worked out yet - they don't even have a studio - but for now Epic is outsourcing and trying to get them work as contractors. Those who haven't gone to Epic have started work at Zynga East and ZeniMax Online, the studio working on the upcoming Elder Scrolls Online. I don't even know what to say about this story other than fist pump, because it's really uplifting to see.
