Epic Games, the company behind Fortnite and Unreal Engine, has bought Harmonix, the studio behind the Rock Band and Dance Central franchises, as well as last year’s Fuser, according to a joint statement released on Tuesday. Harmonix says it will collaborate with Epic “to create musical adventures and gameplay for Fortnite,” but it will continue to work on other music games.

Epic Games has announced the acquisition of Harmonix, a popular music-based game firm, in a tweet. The studio behind ‘Rock Band,’ ‘FUSER,’ and the ‘Guitar Hero’ series will now focus on musical excursions and games for Fortnite.

While continuing to support existing products such as Rock Band 4, the Harmonix team will work closely with Epic to develop musical journeys and gameplay for Fortnite. More information can be found on Harmonix’s blog.

“We’ll be working with Epic to once again challenge expectations as we bring our unique brand of musical gaming experiences to the Metaverse,” the Rock Band studio said. Fortnite has previously hosted musical events and virtual concerts including Ariana Grande, Travis Scott, and Marshmello, so Harmonix would seem to be a suitable fit for Epic’s metaverse goals.

With the launch of its Soundwave Series earlier this fall, Epic took a more global approach to its in-Fortnite musical experiences. The series of musical events featured Egyptian musician Mohamed Hamaki, Australian singer-songwriter Tones And I, Brazilian rapper Emicida, Japanese pop artist Gen Hoshino, and French-Malian singer Aya Nakamura, with each show taking place in its own unique in-game experience.
