According to the announcement from Epic, the gameplay isn’t changing and Epic will “continue to invest in making the game a great experience for players across platforms.”

The game will remain purchasable on Steam and PlayStation. If you own the game on these platforms, you’ll still be able to play it from there and will receive future updates. It is also still coming soon to Nintendo Switch and Xbox.

“At Tonic Games Group we often say that everyone’ deserves a game that feels like it was made for them.’ 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.” – Dave Bailey, Tonic Games Group Co-Founder and CEO.

“Beyond the shared vision among our teams, we see tremendous potential in combining forces with Epic. 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.” – Paul Croft, Tonic Games Group, Co-Founder and Chief Games Officer.

More information on the acquisition and what this means for Fall GUys players can be found on the Mediatoinc blog.
