Epic Games Acquires Fall Guys Developer

Epic Games announces it has acquired Tonic Games Group, parent of developer Mediatonic, the creators of breakout hit Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout. Epic says this will not change the game or how the studio operates, pointing the way to this blog post for specifics on that aspect of this news. There's an interesting note in the brief FAQ there, as this is the answer to the question of whether the game will go free-to-play: "Nothing to announce right now!" Here's more:
This is a huge win for Fall Guys. Since Fall Guys broke out in August, we’ve put everything we have into the game, and the Fall Guys team has already grown massively from 35 to 150+. Yet, there is so much more we want to build for our players. With our publisher Devolver Digital supporting and championing us along the way with Fall Guys, Foul Play and Hatoful Boyfriend, we've been able to bring some truly unique experiences to players as an independent studio.

Joining forces with Epic will accelerate our plans to improve the game and bring Fall Guys to as many players as possible, while continuing to support the community.

Yeah, heard that one before. What happened to Rocket League? Oh yeah, it went free to play (only available on Epic now) and to play it on Steam for those who bought it there in the past 4-5 years you have to link your Steam account to your Epic account. $5-10 bucks down the drain on the some car DLC that Epic lost the license for when the buy out happened.

They'll probably require the FG console versions to log into an Epic account too. At least I got it "free" with PS+ for the PS4. I'm sure my Steam copy will go the way of RL though in 1-2 years.
