Exciting news from Epic Games as they announce their acquisition of AQUIRIS, a Brazil-based studio known for their work on the popular Horizon Chase series. This comes after Epic Games invested in AQUIRIS back in April 2022 and signed a multi-game publishing agreement for future unannounced multiplatform games.
The talented team at AQUIRIS will now serve as the foundation of Epic Games Brasil, which will be the first Epic Games studio based in Latin America. Together, AQUIRIS and Epic Games will be creating groundbreaking content and social experiences within Fortnite.

AQUIRIS CEO and now Epic Games Brasil studio director, Mauricio Longoni, expressed his excitement.
Joining Epic Games builds on our successes in creating memorable games including Wonderbox, Horizon Chase 2, and Looney Tunes World of Mayhem, which we will continue to operate.
We are delighted to leverage our experience using Unreal Engine on game development to contribute to the future of Fortnite.
AQUIRIS has been on the forefront of game development in Brazil and Latin America, and becoming part of Epic Games will spotlight our region’s developers for the entire industry.
