Epic Games buys Fall Guys developer Mediatonic

Acquisitions seem to be the in thing these days and we have another one to add to the growing list the Tonic Games Group, developers of the widely popular Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, will be joining the Epic Games fold, as announced on the Epic Games website.

Apart from the purchase, this won’t mean any drastic changes to how Fall Guys is played, in fact the game will remain purchasable on Steam and PSN, as the developers are preparing to bring it over to the Switch and Xbox as well.

There’s also no announcements yet on whether the game will be going free to play or not.

“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.” shares Tim Sweeney, Epic Games Founder and CEO.

Dave Bailey, Tonic Games Group Co-Founder and CEO, says that “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.”
