Epic Games Inc., a North Carolina-based video game manufacturer, closed its office in Baltimore County last month, laying off 40 employees, Maryland's Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation said Thursday.
Epic announced in August it was opening Impossible Studios in Hunt Valley, hiring 36 employees, some of whom had lost their jobs months earlier at Big Huge Games of Timonium.
Big Huge closed in May after its parent company, 38 Studios, abruptly shut down because of financial problems. Former Orioles and Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling launched 38 Studios in 2006, and the company filed for bankruptcy last summer.
Epic declined to comment beyond a statement...
