Epic Purchases Big Huge Games

In an unlikely scenario, Epic Games, creators of Gears of War and the notorious Unreal Engine 3, has swooped in and purchased the recently closed down Big Huge Games. This is fantastic news as all of the employees who were to be laid off–including Banjo-Kazooie and Viva Piñata composer Grant Kirkhope–will retain their jobs and be able to continue working. As for what their next project will be is anyone’s guess, but at least we know something will be coming from the talented group of individuals following their most recent (and only) game Kingdoms of Amular: Reckoning.
