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.

This is really sad news. Another good game sells out.

Epic needs to die ASAP.
Hopefully the judge in the Apple/epic case will see through epic's baseless position, in their bullshit frivolous suit.

They did, on a preliminary basis.

The judge did side with Epic that Apple cannot conflate Epic's actions in producing an independent payment processing servicing with anything nefarious in their Unreal Engine. Granting Apple's request to bar Epic's Unreal Engine Apple account would have harmed other developers who rely on the engine for their games.
