After Epic Games announced large-scale cuts, rumors about the dismissal of all Mediatonic studio employees appeared on the network. However, Epic Games called this information false.
In a media comment, a company representative referred to a letter from the head of Epic Games, Tim Sweeney, in which it is reported that the company intends to continue investing in the development of Fall Guys. However, he did not say how many people remained in Mediatonic.
Bloomberg journalist Jason Schreier also wrote on X (Twitter) that Mediatonic is not closing. He added that the Fall Guys team actually "suffered a lot", and about 300 people worked in it before the layoffs.
Recall, on September 28, it became known that Epic Games is laying off 16% of employees or about 830 people. In addition, the company gets rid of two assets. She transfers the Bandcamp music store to the Songtradr platform and makes the SuperAwesome advertising provider independent.
