Epic Games opens new Seattle studio to focus on Unreal Engine 4 development
Epic Games announced today that it has launched a new, Seattle-based studio to concentrate on further developing the technology behind Unreal Engine 4. To meet this goal, Epic has begun searching for experienced talent.
The studio, which "will be initially focused on engineering efforts", is currently looking for "exceptional programmers and support staff to collaborate with its engineering group". In particular, the studio is in need of "senior-level talent specializing in online game services and the infrastructure to support them."
As of this writing, there are seven positions available on Epic's Career Center site. These positions cover a wide range of programming-related areas such as animation systems, audio tools, online, rendering, and so-on.
"The proximity to key partners, the density of world-class talent and all the factors that make Seattle an attractive place to live convinced us that it is the perfect locale for Epic's West Coast operation," said Dr. Michael Capps, Epic's President. "We are looking to hire even more of the best engineers around to contribute to Unreal Engine 4, which we believe is set to change the way we all make games."
It still remains to be seen what the name of the studio is or who will be in charge of running it. According to Epic, that information will be revealed soon.
