Infinity Blade studio no longer developing Ender's Game

Epic Games has allowed a project from subsidy studio Chair to be cancelled, a Joystiq report has confirmed.

"One of Epic's primary objectives is to create original and unique franchises,” said Chair co-founder Donald Mustard.

“I don't know that Ender's Game fits into that strategic objective anymore."

The Utah-based Chair first revealed the Ender's Game project back in 2008, and was said to be loosely based on the 1985 sci-fi novel by American author Orson Scott Card.

Mustard said his team “had an amazing design” for the Ender's project.

The group has recently focused much of its time on Infinity Blade, an iPhone-specific game built on a custom mobile-Unreal Engine.
