Now, this is something no one saw coming! Epic Games, the company known for Fortnite, has bought Mediatonic. If you don’t know who Mediatonic are, they’re the ones behind the popular video game Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout.
Here’s what Epic Games had to say:
We are thrilled to announce that Tonic Games Group is joining the Epic Games family. Tonic Games is the development company behind the hit sensation, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout.
For Fall Guys fans, your gameplay isn’t changing and Epic will continue to invest in making the game a great experience for players across platforms. Your favorite colorful beans will still stumble through the chaos on PC, PlayStation, and soon Nintendo Switch and Xbox.
The acquisition caught me by surprise. Epic Games buying Mediatonic was a smart move in my book. With the help of Epic Games, Fall Guys, and possibly other games in the future, will have a longer lifespan. I know Epic Games has been getting hate, but let’s see what they’ll do for Fall Guys.
