Epic Games is opening a studio in the UK, and has acquired and integrated long-time partner Pitbull Studio as part of the process.

This new studio will focus on development of the Unreal Engine 4, while potentially providing help on upcoming Epic releases.

Pitbull has worked with Epic for a long time, contributing to development on the Unreal Engine, Gears of War, Fortnite, and other projects.

Pitbull's Sunderland branch will now become Epic Games UK, while its Leamington Spa and Guildford offices will support Epic Games UK.

Epic's Mike Gamble noted, "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."

Pitbull's Robert Troughton will serve as general manager of Epic Games UK, and will oversee all UK operations while also helping Unreal Engine 4 devs around Europe.

There are currently numerous roles available at this new studio.
