Epic Games was founded in 1991 as Potomac Computer Systems by a passionate young engineering student Tim Sweeney. After initial struggles and eventual success, the company was renamed Epic Games in 1999 and shifted its operations to Cary’s current location. Epic Games have several commercially successful products on their list, but the battle royale game Fortnite took the company to another level.
Fortnite was launched back in 2017 by Epic Games to enter the exponentially growing and commercially profitable battle royale segment. Shortly after its launch, Fortnite became greatly popular in the gaming community. It has largely contributed to the fame and revenue of Epic Games. Epic Games today is a great commercial success. It was valued at $17.3 billion as of August 2020.
