Epic Games opens UK development studio

Epic Games, the studio behind the Unreal Engine among other things, have announced that they will be opening a UK studio down in Guilford. 

Epic Games UK will be led from a Sunderland branch – previously Pitbull Studio, which has become part of the Unreal firm. It will be helped by Pitbull’s Leamington Spa office and a new workspace opening in Guildford.

All three offices will help out with Unreal Engine 4 development and could contribute to the upcoming Epic games such as Fortnite. 

“The UK has a rich history of games development, as well as a wide range of experienced developers,” CEO Tim Sweeney told Develop.

“We’re also attracted to the expertise in key areas like physics and lighting emanating from British universities such as Cambridge and Oxford."

“Right now, we’re building a world-class talent pool in the UK to contribute to all aspects of Unreal Engine 4. Our aim at Epic is to provide the world’s best and most versatile engine, scaling from indie mobile development to high-budget triple-A games.”
