Epic Games announces new acquisition of RAD Game Tools
Epic Games: acquisition of RAD Game Tools
Epic Games has acquired the technology and business of RAD Game Tools, based on a post made on the official Epic Games site. RAD Game Tools is actually a video game software development company. Based on the post, its “products and technology appear in close to 25,000 games and are actually leveraged by the world’s leading gaming companies, including Epic.”
Epic Games is actually the proprietor of both the Epic Games Store and the Unreal Engine, a popular and powerful game development tool. The statement further reads, RAD and “Epic plan to integrate RAD’s powerful technology into Unreal Engine to help the developer community and gamers alike.”
Epic Games has used RAD’s technology before, particularly the compression technology. It has allowed the developer to improve the load time of Fortnite, which is currently one of the most famous games in the planet. The post further describes that as games start to be more “photorealistic and powerful, developers require best-in-class compression software program that can manage increased data requirements without compromising quality.”
To put it briefly, the program is actually for RAD’s technology and team to work with audio teams, insights, animation, and the rendering for Unreal Engine to improve the systems and infrastructure that game developers use. While Epic now owns RAD, RAD is going to continue its current work with film partners, television, and game industry, including people who don’t use Unreal Engine in the work of theirs.
This is not the only significant move Epic Games has made recently. Fortnite’s publisher and developer recently purchased a mall with nearly a million square feet of space to serve as the company’s global HQ. at last let me invite you to read more about latest updates here .
