Mediatonic, the developer behind Fall Guys, has just been acquired by Epic Games. 

In an announcement made on Twitter, the game announced the move as well as attaching a blog post that explains what this now means. 

The blog post reads: "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."

So what exactly will change? They continued: "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."

They then included a FAQ section, however so many people are trying to access the blog that the page is currently down. Luckily, we managed to get the info for you. 

How will this affect the game?

"Your gameplay isn’t changing and neither is our mission to bring Fall Guys to as many players as possible. Each season, we’ll continue to expand the game with new content, features, rounds, and costumes.

"Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout 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. We are also still planning to bring Fall Guys to Nintendo Switch and Xbox. Fortnite and Rocket League already have tons of features we’d love to bring to Fall Guys—account systems, cross-play, squad vs squad modes, etc…We’re going to work hard on bringing more of these features to Fall Guys too!"

Will it be Free-To-Play?

"Nothing to announce right now!"

How will this affect the community?

"We absolutely love our community and we wouldn’t be in this situation without your continued support. We’ll stay super close with you, continue to chat with you in the same open and honest way, and continue to take on all of your suggestions and feedback."

Why did Mediatonic choose Epic?

"We’ve been mutual fans for a while and as we’ve gotten to know the Epic team better, it turns out we have a lot in common and share a lot of the same goals.

"They really love Fall Guys and our team at Mediatonic. We’ll continue to be the same team, working on the same game, but we’ll now have the full power of Epic Games to help us take the game to new (dizzying) heights."

Will Mediatonic still make the same kind of games in future?

They wrote: "We’re proud of Mediatonic’s creative culture and this is something that Epic really values too. We’re focused on creating games that empower our players, create joy, and bring people together to have fun, and we couldn’t be more excited about the opportunities ahead."
