“At Tonic Games Group we often say that ‘everyone deserves a game that feels like it was made for them,’” says Dave Bailey, co-founder, chief executive officer, Tonic Games Group. “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.” 
“Beyond the shared vision among our teams, we see tremendous potential in combining forces with Epic,” adds Paul Croft, co-founder, chief games officer, Tonic Games Group. “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.”
