Fortnite developer Epic Games announces its purchase of the Cary Towne Center in North Carolina, and plans to convert it into a new headquarters.
Epic Games announces its plans for a new global headquarters. The developer has purchased an empty retail space in Cary, North Carolina, and intends to turn the area into an expansive campus.
Epic Games is most known for Fortnite, the ever-popular battle royale shooter. The game is currently in its fifth season, which has seen the addition of God of War's Kratos, Halo's Master Chief, and The Mandalorian's Din Djarin. With the season ending in a few weeks, a new Fortnite theory may reveal what Season 6 has in store.
The studio behind Fortnite took to Twitter to announce the purchase of the Cary Towne Center, a defunct mall. The 980,000-square-foot and 87-acre property is expected to be fully converted into Epic Games' new headquarters by 2024. However, development on the site is expected to begin as soon as this year, with Epic detailing the acquisition on its official website.
Epic also discusses the different functions the remodeled site will have. Sitting just outside the state capital of Raleigh, the new facility will include both office buildings and recreational spaces, allowing Epic the flexibility to create a campus customized from the ground up to accommodate its long-term growth.
Cary has been the home of Epic Games for the past 20 years, with its original Crossroads Boulevard location remaining as the development workspace until the new site is ready. Epic isn't the only game studio investing in new work spaces. Nintendo also recently invested half a million dollars into building a new headquarters for Retro Studios, the company behind the long-awaited Metroid Prime 4. As gaming continues to skyrocket in popularity, it's good to see major companies like Epic Games invest in their employees for the long run.
Pro gamer Ali-A has an interesting Fortnite theory that may reveal what the upcoming Season 6 has in store. Ali-A revealed his theory in a recent YouTube video, and if it's correct, it seems quite likely that a major Fortnite event from the game's first season could be making a comeback of some kind.
In the new video, Ali-A points out how Fortnite Chapter 2 seasons have been similar to Chapter 1 seasons. For example, Fortnite Chapter 1 Season 4 had a superhero theme, whereas Chapter 2 Season 4 was all about Marvel superheroes. It's possible this is just coincidence, but it's also possible that Epic Games is doing this on purpose, and if so, one should be able to look at Chapter 1 Season 6 to get an idea of what Chapter 2 Season 6 has in store.
As some may recall, the Fortnite Chapter 1 Season 6 theme was Darkness Rises. During this season, a mysterious purple cube appeared on the Fortnite battle royale map, which the community affectionately nicknamed Kevin. Kevin the cube in Fortnite eventually made its way to the island in the middle of Loot Lake, raising it into the sky and creating a completely unique point of interest for BR players in the process.
