The studio will be developing musical journeys and gameplay for Fortnite.
“Harmonix has always aspired to create the world’s most beloved interactive music experiences, and by joining Epic we will be able to do this at scale,” said Alex Rigopulos, Co-Founder and Chairman at Harmonix. “Together we will push the creative boundaries of what’s possible and invent new ways for our players to make, perform and share music.”
"Music is already bringing millions of people together in Fortnite, from our emotes to global concerts and events,” comments Alain Tascan, Vice President of Game Development at Epic Games. “Together with the Harmonix team, we will transform how players experience music, going from passive listeners to active participants.”
