In each post, I explain how, while investors can’t invest directly in the company, there are alternative investment vehicles available.
Sadly for investors, investing in Epic Games stock is no different – the stock isn’t publicly listed but there are alternatives, and this post explains what they are.
Founded in 1991, Epic Games is an American MNC with headquarters in Cary, North Carolina, and more than 40 offices worldwide. Epic is now a renowned interactive entertainment company and 3D engine technology provider.
Epic Games creates and markets Hitman and Fortnite, one of the world’s most popular and fastest-growing massive multiplayer online (MMO) games.
Parents are keen to buy Epic Games stock since they see how much money their children spend on Fortnite.
Although Fortnite is free to play, Epic Games makes money by selling an $11.99 per month Fortnite Crew Experience membership that grants users access to more weapons and benefits.
Epic Games was set up in 1991 by Tim Sweeney as Potomac Computer Systems. It was initially set up in his parents' house in Potomac, Maryland.
The company was renamed Epic MegaGames, Inc. after launching its first commercial video game, ZZT (1991). In early 1992, they hired Mark Rein, currently the company's vice president.
