People Can Fly, the studio behind Painkiller, Gears of War: Judgement, and Bulletstorm, has been rebranded as Epic Games Poland.
In a statement provided by a company representative to Pixel Enemy:
“We’ve changed the studio’s name from People Can Fly to Epic Games Poland. We’re a global company with talented people working toward one goal across the world. We think this helps better reflect that.”
It looks like the People Can Fly website is still active for the time being, so the rebranding, while confirmed, does not appear to have completed its processes.
Along with the name-change announcement is news that Epic Games Poland is one of several Epic studios working on a new sandbox survival game entitled Fortnite. It will certainly be interesting to see what the minds behind Bulletstorm and the latest Gears of War title can do in an open-world environment.
