Simon Allaeys, CEO of Kamu said, “Joining the Epic family is not only a childhood dream come true, but a huge boost for our mission to help developers create beautiful gaming experiences. Battling cheating in games was just the start; today our products also help developers stay competitive by identifying player needs as quickly as they emerge.”

Sweeney continued, “Building and launching games today is incredibly challenging, and only half the battle. Kamu’s tools for managing live games help developers grow and sustain their games successfully after launch. At Epic, we succeed when developers succeed!”

The Kamu team will continue to expand its services in support of all customers and all of the engines they’ve chosen, while Epic’s new presence in Helsinki will serve as a base for recruiting technology, engine, and online service developers in Finland.
