Epic Games today announced it's expanding to Seattle, Wash. with a new studio to focus on engineering efforts for Unreal Engine 4. Epic is not saying whether or not actual games will be created there.

“The proximity to key partners, the density of world-class talent and all the factors that make Seattle an attractive place to live convinced us that it is the perfect locale for Epic’s West Coast operation,” said Epic Games President Dr. Michael Capps. “We are looking to hire even more of the best engineers around to contribute to Unreal Engine 4, which we believe is set to change the way we all make games.”

Epic recently opened Impossible Studios in Baltimore, Md., which is comprised mainly of Big Huge Games staff.
