Magical Game Collaborations : disney x epic games

Disney and Epic Games have announced a new partnership that will create a vast and immersive games and entertainment universe connected to Fortnite. Disney will also invest $1.5 billion to acquire an equity stake in Epic Games, the developer of the popular battle royale game and the Unreal Engine. The deal is expected to close in the second quarter of 2024, subject to regulatory approvals.

The new collaboration will leverage the power of Unreal Engine and Fortnite’s open ecosystem to bring together the Disney and Fortnite communities and offer them unprecedented opportunities to play, watch, shop, and engage with content, characters, and stories from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, Avatar, and more. Players, gamers, and fans will be able to create their own stories and experiences, express their fandom in a distinctly Disney way, and share content with each other in ways that they love. The project will also expand the reach of Disney’s beloved brands and franchises to a broader and more diverse audience.
