The next installment in Epic Games' popular Infinity Blade series has been delayed to 2013. Company spokesperson Wes Phillips told AllThingsD that Infinity Blade: Dungeons will not make it out this year due to its newly formed developer Impossible Studios adding fresh ideas to the game, as well as various logistical issues.
"Ever since the talented team at Impossible Studios got their hands on Infinity Blade: Dungeons, they've been busy adding their great ideas to the game," Phillips said. "There was also the matter of getting the Impossible Studios team up and running with desks, chairs, staplers, and computers. The logistics of a new studio and implementing all these great ideas required a little extra time, so Infinity Blade: Dungeons will hit iOS in 2013."
Epic opened the Hunt Valley, Maryland-based Impossible Studios in August, tasking the outfit to collaborate with Chair Entertainment on Infinity Blade: Dungeons. The studio is led by Big Huge Games, Activision, and THQ veteran Sean Dunn.
Epic Games announced Infinity Blade: Dungeons during Apple's new iPad event in March. Epic Games president Mike Capps said of the game, "These guys are redefining gaming again."
