Sony Buys $250 Million Stake in Epic Games

In recent months we’ve seen an increasingly warm relationship between Sony and Epic Games, with Epic notably showing their first Unreal Engine 5 demo running on PlayStation 5 hardware, and now the two companies have strengthened their partnership as Sony purchased a $250 minority stake in Epic Games, which allows the two companies to broaden their collaboration. Epic has raised approximately $1.6 billion in funding in recent years. It will be interesting to see what kind of results this investment will bring. Will we see more Unreal Engine 5 demos and features designed specifically for the PS5? Will Sony and Epic directly collaborate on some sort of project?
