Fall Guys bought by Fortnite maker Epic Games

The British video game company behind 2020's smash hit Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout has been bought by Epic Games. Epic previously bought another hugely popular online title, Rocket League, and turned it into a free game with enhanced cosmetics that could be bought. "It's unclear if Mediatonic had plans of releasing a mobile version of Fall Guys outside of China, but if they did, the Epic Games acquisition is bound to complicate the matters, given the ongoing Epic Games legal battle with Apple." Dave Bailey, one of the former university students who founded the studio in 2005, said "With Epic, we feel like we have found a home that was made for us. They share our mission to build and support games that have a positive impact, empower others and stand the test of time". Epic Games' founder and chief Tim Sweeney was a little more cryptic, saying: "It's no secret that Epic is invested in building the Metaverse, and Tonic Games shares this goal."
