Sony invests in Fortnite game

It's a very important moment for Sony as the console war is approaching between the PlayStation 5 and the Microsoft Xbox Series X.


Sony has invested $ 250 million in the creator of the very popular Fortnite video game, Epic Games. With the new investment Epic has raised a total of $ 1.83 billion to date.

The companies said the deal cemented an already close relationship by strengthening their shared objectives. In the past three funding episodes Epic Games had raised $ 1.58 billion.

Under the deal Sony will acquire a stake in Epic Games but not a controlling stake. Specifically, it is about 1.4% of the shares, estimating Epic Games with 17.86 billion dollars.

It's a very important moment for Sony as the console war is approaching between the PlayStation 5 and the Microsoft Xbox Series X. Epic Games is not only the developer but also the publisher of the Fortnite game numbering 350 million registered users.

He is also the creator of Unreal Engine, the fundamental tools used to build many games. /floranews.eu
