Epic Games is setting up shop in the UK, MCV’s sister site Develop has revealed.
The tools and development powerhouse, known for its popular Unreal Engine as well as blockbusters like the Gears of War series, has established a UK base of operations.
Epic Games UK will be led from a Sunderland branch – previously Pitbull Studio, which has become part of the Unreal firm. It will be supported by Pitbull’s Leamington Spa office and a new workspace opening in Guildford.
The three offices will aid development on Unreal Engine 4, with the potential to contribute to games like Fortnite. Meanwhile, Mike Gamble will continue to run the UE licensing effort for all of Europe from his UK office, as he has been since 2011.
