Epic now wholly owns Bulletstorm dev People Can Fly

"It was something we always hoped to do," says Gears of War maker

Epic Games has wholly acquired People Can Fly, having taken a majority stake in the Warsaw, Poland-based developer back in 2007.


People Can Fly previously worked on the PC version of Gears of War, made Bulletstorm, and is currently developing Gears of War: Judgment.

"We doubled down on People Can Fly," Epic vice president Mark Rein told Polygon. "It was something we always hoped to do."

The departure of People Can Fly creative lead Adrian Chmielarz and two other dev staff this week was related to the acquisition and was amiable, Rein added.

"We will be helping [Chmielarz] with some future announcements," he said. "Our paths will be crossing again."

Epic recently confirmed a Gears of War: Judgement release date of March 19, 2013.
