Fortnite creator Epic Games buys maker of Fall Guys: Tonic Games Group

Epic Games, the creator of highly popular FPS game, Fortnite, has bought Tonic Games Group (TGC), the makers of Fall Guys: UltimateKnockout.

Fall Guys is a family-friendly online video game that became very popular during the global pandemic, especially when people were trapped in the comfort of their homes.

Epic buying TGC falls under the company’s broader plans of creating its own metaverse — an immersive “virtual world” where people of all ages can play games, go to concerts, and watch movies.

“It’s no secret that Epic is invested in building the metaverse, and Tonic Games shares this goal,” Tim Sweeney, founder of Epic, said in a statement.

Just last year, Epic Games got into a major feud with Apple over the App Store’s policies, which resulted in Fortnite being removed from the App Store.
