‘Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout’ Developer Tonic Games Acquired by Epic Games

Epic Games, the brand behind battle-royale phenomenon “Fortnite,” has brought Tonic Games into the family.

According the latest announcement from Epic Games, the brand is dedicated to keeping the much-loved “Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout” experience for players across platforms.  

“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.” 
“It’s no secret that Epic is invested in building the metaverse and Tonic Games shares this goal,” says Tim Sweeney, founder, chief executive officer, Epic Games. “As Epic works to build this virtual future, we need great creative talent who know how to build powerful games, content and experiences.”  

“Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout” will soon be released on new console platforms and bring even more fans to the fun, colorful world of “Fall Guys.”
