We don’t know how much of a stake Sony’s total $450 million investment gives it in the company, but according to today’s announcement, Epic CEO and founder Tim Sweeney still remains the controlling shareholder in the company.
This isn’t the first time Sony has invested money in Epic Games. Last summer, Sony invested $250 million into the company, and the two have apparently had a close relationship in the past, with Epic Games praising the PS5’s SSD ahead of launch and even using the console to debut Unreal Engine 5.
“We are grateful to our new and existing investors who support our vision for Epic and the Metaverse,” Sweeney said in today’s announcement. “Their investment will help accelerate our work around building connected social experiences in Fortnite, Rocket League and Fall Guys, while empowering game developers and creators with Unreal Engine, Epic Online Services and the Epic Games Store.”
