The Astronauts Formed

Though Epic recently bought up the remainder of People Can Fly, that is not keeping the founders of this Polish developer from reaching for the stars, as they today announce the formation of The Astronauts, an indie studio with the rights to develop multiple games using Epic's Unreal technology. Here's word:

Epic Games, Inc. and The Astronauts, the new independent games studio founded by Adrian Chmielarz, Andrzej Poznanski and Michal Kosieradzki, announce a long-term Unreal Engine licensing agreement. Under the deal terms, The Astronauts have the rights to develop multiple games using the latest Unreal Engine technology. The team is creating its debut title, an unannounced game due for release in 2013, with Epic’s award- winning Unreal Engine 3 (UE3).

“We’ve worked with UE3 for the last six years, and we know its power,” said Adrian Chmielarz, co-founder of The Astronauts. “Choosing Unreal Engine technology for our future was the textbook definition of a no-brainer. We are on a quest to map uncharted waters, and Epic’s tech provides the stability required for success.”

“We’re truly impressed with what high-quality games small, independent teams are creating using the Unreal Engine,” said Mike Gamble, European territory manager of Epic. “The best is yet to come, and there’s a good chance that The Astronauts will be one of those teams that makes us say ‘Wow.’”

Strange name for a studio, I agree. Sounds too much like a game, so when you see a press release you're wondering which is which. I think it's mostly because they put a "the" in front of it.

So it'll be a space game, right?
