Overview edit · view history

Epic Games China is the Chinese division of Epic Games, Inc., set up in September 2006 to provide low-cost game asset outsourcing to both Epic and third parties. Based in Shanghai, it is run by the team responsible for content development at studios including Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Shanghai.

At the CEDEC Premium conference at the Tokyo Game Show in September 2006, Epic Vice President of Business Development Jay Wilbur explained that the cost per man month (including overhead) to produce games in North America is around $9,000, and in Europe and Japan, it's $8,500 per man month. But costs per man month in China are less than $4,000 - hence Epic's choice to keep its core team at Epic's NC offices, but outsource significant amounts of art creation for its games.
