Epic acquires Chair Entertainment

Epic Games has acquired Chair Entertainment, developer of the XBLA title Undertow

Epic Games has announced the acquisition of developer Chair Entertainment.

Chair most recently created the XBLA game Undertow and is currently working on projects based upon Orson Scott Card's Empire and Ender's Game books.

"Chair's stylised 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 Epic VP Mark Rein.

"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."

Chair Entertainment, which was founded in 2005, will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Epic Games. In 2007, the company announced that it would be using the Unreal Engine exclusively for all of its upcoming projects.
