Epic Games has purchased Tonic Games Group, the parent organization of Fall Guys studio Mediatonic. The aggregate additionally incorporates the publisher Irregular Corporation and another studio, Fortitude Games.

“Beyond the shared vision among our teams, we see tremendous potential in combining forces with Epic,” Tonic Games Group co-founder and chief games official Paul Croft said in an explanation. “Whether it’s about making our own games the best they can be or empowering other game developers to take their content from a kernel of an idea to commercial success, we know that together we will be able to reach greater heights.”

The Fall Guys “gameplay isn’t changing,” as per Epic. The organization intends to continue to invest in the hit platformer fight royale. The game is presently accessible on PlayStation 4, PS5 and Steam. Fall Guys will arrive on Nintendo Switch and Xbox this mid year. Probably after this deal, it will show up on the Epic Games Store later on also.

In a blog post, Mediatonic said it’s wanting to bring some of the features of Fortnite and Rocket League over to Fall Guys. Those incorporate account systems, cross-play and crew versus squad modes. In contrast to those other two games, Fall Guys isn’t going allowed to-play, at least not until further notice. Fall Guys as of now utilizes a similar anti-cheat software as Fortnite.

The news goes ahead the same day that Fall Guys got five BAFTA Games Awards nominations. Mediatonic recently uncovered a futuristic theme for the game’s forthcoming fourth season.
