Epic Games Poland has returned to its original name People Can Fly and is once again an independent studio, Epic Games and People Can Fly have announced.
Ownership of the company has returned to the local leadership team in Warsaw. Studio director Sebastian Wojciechowski continues to lead the team, which is currently contributing to Unreal Engine 4 and Epic's upcoming game, Fortnite.
People Can Fly is also using Unreal Engine 4 to create an unannounced title.
"We, as a People Can Fly team, are extremely excited about new possibilities ahead of us," said Wojciechowski. "We're going to work on a new game, while continuing to partner with Epic and use UE4. We're grateful to Tim [Sweeney, Epic Games Founder and CEO] and the whole Epic team for our long and successful collaboration."
A blog post by the studio indicates the new game will be a shooter.
"Our DNA is AAA shooters and we've just started a journey to bring you our new game. So please stay tuned!" reads the blog.
The studio also confirmed on its website that it holds the IP rights to Bulletstorm, a first-person shooter released in 2011 by EA. Bulletstorm 2 anyone?
