Epic Games Acquires Kamu, and their Easy Anti-Cheat Software

They really don't like cheaters.

It was revealed earlier last week that in their unending crusade to battle cheaters and hackers, PUBG had actually banned over 13 million accounts during a 69-week period. But never one to be outdone, Fortnite has just announced that they’re taking their crusade to the next level by actually buying Kamu, the creators of the Easy Anti-Cheat software, so they can provide in-house support and improvements to their product.

You guys just can’t let PUBG have a win, can you?

Simon Allaeys, CEO of Kamu, had this to say:

“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. 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!”


Epic Games had already been using Kamu’s software before the acquisition, but with Epic’s money behind them, Kamu will be able to better develop and improve their software to make it easier and, hopefully, more effective. As for the other games (over eighty, apparently) that use Kamu: for the time being, it’ll be business as usual for them. But with Epic at the helm, that could change at a moment’s notice. I’m not sure why it would, at this point the extra business is just more money for them, but hey, it’s their company now so they can do whatever they want with it.

Ultimately, though, it’s good to see more effort put against hackers and cheaters, who I frankly have no sympathy for. Go get em’, boys and girls.
