Epic Games

Epic Games creates Unreal Engine, the technology and platform that powers the studio’s hit game Fortnite, and freely shares Unreal Engine’s tools and source code with more than 6.5 million developers of games and virtual and augmented reality applications. Fortnite: Battle Royale, released in 2017 on PC , Xbox, PlayStation, and Mac and on iOS, Nintendo Switch, and Android in 2018, introduced industry-first cross-platform play and has surpassed more than 125 million players worldwide. On the strength of its premium purchases, from weapons to character dance moves—which, controversially, it freely cribs from celebrities and viral video stars—Fortnite became the most successful free-to-play game ever.
