Epic Games has acquired Mediatonic, the developer of the popular battle royale game Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout.

That was announced yesterday. The purchase should not further affect Fall Guys. Epic wants to continue to invest in making the game “a great experience for players on a variety of systems.”

Fall Guys will therefore continue to be offered on Stream and PlayStation consoles. The game is also still coming to Nintendo Switch and Xbox consoles this summer.

Mediatonic founder Dave Bailey is also delighted: “At Tonic Games Group we often say that everyone deserves a game that appears to be made for them. At Epic Games we feel that we have found a home that is made for us. They share our mission to build and support games that have a positive impact and stand the test of time. We are very excited to partner with them. “

Although the purchase should not change Fall Guys in a negative way, according to the developer, various options that are available in Fortnite, for example, would not be out of place in the game. For example, in this FAQ, the company lists cross-play and squads versus squads modes as possible additions in the future.
