This is What You Need to Know About Epic Games Stock

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.

However, Epic Games is not now available for purchase on the stock market because it is a private corporation that is not tradable.

History of Epic Games

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.
