“It’s no secret that Epic is invested in building the metaverse and Tonic Games shares this goal. As Epic works to build this virtual future, we need great creative talent who know how to build powerful games, content and experiences.” – Tim Sweeney, Epic Games Founder and CEO.
Epic Games and Tonic Games Group are both announcing that the latter will be joining Epic Games as part of their larger port folio. The announcement does not detail specifics regarding the deal and both companies have not disclosed the amount for the deal.
Mediatonic is the creator of Fall Guys and has had incredible success since the release of the game. With Fall Guys now appearing in various other platforms, post-acquisition messaging assures players that the game continue to be supported and will expand with crossplay and Epic account support with Fortnite and Rocket League.
This happens during a time where Epic Games is on a high-profile case against Apple for circumventing App Store limitations.
