The core of this new branch of epic will consist of longtime partner Pitbull studios, probably best known for their contributions to Gears of War: Judgment.

Tim Sweeney, Epic founder and CEO had this to say: "Pitbull has been essential in helping us develop the best tools and technology for building the next generation of games. [...] They've been invested in UE4's evolution since its early beginnings, and their dedication is unflinching."

Meanwhile, Euro license manager for Epic Mike Gamble has a lot of faith in this decision: "Setting up a bespoke Epic presence here and fully utilizing the Pitbull team as part of that enables us to support Unreal Engine 4 developers across Europe on an entirely new level."

Finally, Pitbull's general manager Robert Troughton couldn't be happier: "Becoming Epic Games UK was the next logical step in our relationship with Epic. We're looking forward to expanding our amazing team here in the UK."
