Sony acquires a minority stake in Epic


To mark the beginning of the summer Sony offers a piece of Epic

As recently as today, Sony, in an apparently jovial mood, is taking us in turn the first visual of the PS5 boxes and a minority investment at Epic. Like that! The parent company of PlayStation has indeed invested $ 250 million in the business of Tom Sweeney. The idea, as our IGN colleagues emphasize, is that the two companies collaborate on games and technologies.

We remember that before the PS5 presentation, Sony had revealed, without warning again, the Unreal Engine 5 with a very impressive demo. Entitled Lumen in the land of Nanite, this demonstration extolled the merits of the future console with light management never seen in real time.

What Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida says about this investment: “Epic’s powerful technology in areas like graphics puts them at the forefront of game engine development with Unreal Engine and other innovations. There is no better example than Fortuit’s revolutionary entertainment experience. “

It remains to be seen whether this investment will lead to exclusives or not. Sony may be looking to put pressure to keep the EU5 for them, but it is unlikely. Between this and the rumor of Microsoft’s takeover of WB Games, we are really living in a great time!
