Epic Games invests in Brazilian developer Aquiris

Fortnite creators Epic Games have invested in Brazilian developer Aquiris and signed a publishing agreement.

The studio is best known for the Horizon Chase series and its Apple Arcade release Wonderbox, but Aquiris is also working on a new, currently unannounced game.

Epic Games will release it alongside an undisclosed number of other future titles, with Aquiris saying the investment will define the studio’s next 15 years.

CEO Mauricio Longoni said: “We are very excited to be partnering with Epic Games. It’s a strong endorsement of what Aquiris has built so far and we can’t wait to show the world what we’re working on together.

“Epic’s publishing capabilities and close collaboration with us across technology, business intelligence and product development will help us increase the quality and reach of our titles.”

Hector Sanchez, Head of Third Party Publishing at Epic Games, will join the Aquiris board as a result of the investment.

He said: “Aquiris not only has a keen eye for high-quality gaming experiences, but has also demonstrated great artistic and technical prowess using the Unreal Engine in its products.

“We are honored to have this opportunity to strengthen our relationship with one of the leading studios in the growing and important Latin American development scene.”

The news comes days after Epic Games received its own investment from Sony and LEGO’s parent company KIRKBI. The entertainment giants each invested $1 billion to deepen their ties with the metaverse.
