Epic Games China has announced the opening of Titan Studios, a wholly owned subsidiary based in Seattle, to create original games and provide additional time zone support to partners using Epic's outsourcing services.
Titan Studios was also formed to create technologies to extend the functionality of Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3.
"We are recruiting highly talented and hard working developers, and giving them the resources they need to be successful," said Paul Meegan, chief executive officer of Epic Games China.
"We believe in creating small, cohesive teams that leverage Unreal Engine 3, our production talent in Asia, as well as our Asian and Western design sensibilities and market awareness."
Jay Wilbur, vice president of Epic Games, added: "Titan Studios offers a way for intellectual property owners to leverage Unreal Engine 3 and Epic Games China's full suite of game development services."
"Not only are Titan developing award-winning, original IP of their own, they also have resources available to help other studios increase productivity and minimize risk."
