ORLANDO, Fla. – After months of speculation following the company’s repurchase of a hefty plot of land, Universal announced plans Thursday to launch a new theme park called Epic Universe.

During an announcement at the Orange County Convention Center on Thursday morning, Comcast NBCUniversal Chairman and CEO Brian Roberts said that the park could be the company’s largest investment yet and has the potential to also be the state’s biggest investment in the history of its theme park industry.

Comcast NBCUniversal owns Universal as well as Telemundo, the Golf Channel and Xfinity products.

“I don’t think there’s been an announcement like this in over 20 years,” Roberts said.
