CARY – Epic Games acquisition of Cary Towne Center is a big one – literally and figuratively – for the video game and technology development company. So big, in fact, it’s already having an impact on the privately held company’s immediate operations as the publisher of the globally popular game Fortnite plans to build a “campus customized from the ground up.”
“We will not be proceeding with additional construction at our current headquarters,” Elka Looks, Communications Director for Corporate at Epic Games, tells WRAL TechWire.
However, a new campus doesn’t mean any changes in Epic’s technology game plan.
“We do not anticipate any changes to our product, game or technology roadmap,” Looks says.
Epic has been adding to its operations on Crossroads Boulevard as part of an expansion announced in October 2019. But the announced deal to buy the nearly 1 million square foot mall and surrounding property that was disclosed Sunday means a much larger physical footprint with plenty of room to grow.
