Epic Games Acquires Indie Music Company Bandcamp

News Startups Tech

The makers of Fortnite, Epic Games, have recently acquired Bandcamp, an online indie-focused music startup. This unorthodox move follows the gaming giant’s acquisition of Harmonix, a music gaming developer most well known for the Guitar Hero and Rock Band franchises.

Why Epic is collecting these music-based companies is still unclear, but one potential purpose is to incorporate their technologies into Fortnite, possibly with the intent of creating a seamless “Metaverse”.
