People Can Fly returns, goes independent

Studio developing new Unreal Engine-based game.

People Can Fly

People Can Fly is back. The studio, which was renamed Epic Games Poland in 2013, has regained its original name and has branched off from Epic Games as an independent developer. It has new Unreal Engine-powered projects in development, too.

Studio director Sebastian Wojciechowski continues to lead the developer, which is currently contributing to Unreal Engine 4, Epic’s upcoming Fortnite, as well as an entirely new unannounced Unreal Engine-powered game.

“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 and the whole Epic team for our long and successful collaboration.”

People Can Fly is known for developing Bulletstorm, Painkiller, and Gears of War: Judgment.
