Chair Entertainment Group Acquired By Epic Games

In a startling turn of events, we have received a press release just now that Epic has purchased Undertow developer Chair Entertainment Group. It is unknown at this time if the acquisition will have any effect on upcoming Chair games or Chair's location, but you can be sure we will try to figure it out.

"Chair's stylized approach to creating games is further enhanced by their ability to stretch our technology in new directions that not only help in creating amazing gaming experiences but also demonstrate the power and versatility of the Unreal Engine," said Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games, Inc. "We are thrilled to bring the Chair team into the Epic family, and look forward to working with them to create original new games that continue to innovate and inspire."
