The amount of the deal is undisclosed and marks another high-profile acquisition. In 2019, Epic Games had acquired House Party and Rocket League too.
The companies assured that the gameplay of Fall Guys will not change and Epic will continue to invest in making the game “a great experience” for players across platforms.
Epic is also set to make the game available for Nintendo Switch and Xbox along with PC and PlayStation.
In a blog post the companies have suggested that as of now, there are no plans to make the game free-to-play.
Dave Bailey, Tonic Games Group co-founder and CEO, in a statement said, “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.”
Tim Sweeney, Epic Games founder and CEO, said, “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.”
