Epic Games

Epic Games, Inc. is a North Carolina-based video game and software developer and publisher. Previously known as Potomac Computer Systems, the company was founded in 1991 by Tim Sweeney, and later in early 1992 was renamed to Epic MegaGames, Inc. Epic Games creates the Unreal Engine, a commercially available game engine that also powers their own video games, such as Fortnite and the Unreal, Gears of War, and Infinity Blade series.


Epic Games is the parent company of video game developers Chair Entertainment, Psyonix, Mediatonic, and Harmonix, as well as cloud-based software developer Cloudgine, and numerous sub-studios in Seattle, England, Berlin, Yokohama, and Seoul. Epic Games operates the Epic Games Store, a digital video game storefront for Microsoft Windows and macOS. It debuted in December 2018 as a website as well as a standalone launcher, the latter of which is required to download and play games.

Epic Games was one of eleven companies chosen to participate in the Disney Accelerator programme in 2017. Epic Games Publishing, a new multi-platform publishing label, was announced in March 2020. Epic Games announced in February 2022 that over half a billion accounts had been created on its own platform.
