Fall Guys has been a major hit for developer Mediatonic and now it seems, they’re using that success to grow into bigger opportunities. The Tonic Games Group has just announced that they are joining Epic Games.
Tonic group Co-Founder and CEO Dave Bailey, offered the following statement on Epic’s website:
“At Tonic Games Group we often say that ‘everyone deserves a game that feels like it was made for them.’ 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 and we couldn’t be more excited to be joining forces with their team.”
Epic CEO and Founder Tim Sweeney offered a similar statement:
“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.”
Content, content, content. The major players in the industry and stacking up on developers and studios to produce content for the future. Every week we feel as though there’s another studio being bought up by a larger company and we don’t believe that trend will end any time soon. We hope this is for the best and wish a congratulations to all involved!
