Epic Buys Remainder of People Can Fly

Polygon has word that Epic has bought up the remaining portion of People Can Fly, the Polish developer (Bulletstorm Gears of War: Judgment) that they've owned a majority of since 2007. This follows news of departures from the developer, including founder Adrian Chmielarz, which this report says are related, though this door is apparently still open: "We will be helping (Chmielarz) with some future announcements," says Epic's Mark Rein. "Our paths will be crossing again." As for the purchase: "We doubled down on People Can Fly," Rein said. "It was something we always hoped to do."

I never played it as it seemed a large part of what they were proud of was its creative use of bad language. I figured if that's one of the main selling points of the game, no thanks. Was an incredibly cheap, juvenile tactic. If it actually was good, low sales seems like a marketing failure.

Like I said, the attempt at in-your-face marketing failed, as it almost always does. This wasn't "Make You It's Bitch" bad, but it was close as far as terrible advertising goes.
