Epic Games has acquired video game security and player services company Kamu for an undisclosed fee.
Based in Helsinki, Kamu offers a suite of services focusing on game security, game telemetry, and game management, while its Easy Anti-Cheat system is used by over 100 million PC players around the world.
Epic, meanwhile, is the company behind the Unreal Engine, as well as games including Gears of War, Shadow Complex, and popular battle royale shooter Fortnite.
A variety of Kamu's tools have actually been used to balance out and manage Fortnite's multiplayer experience, making it fair for players across the board.
Moving forward, the Kamu team will continue to expand its service line-up, while Epic hopes its new presence in Helsinki will help it recruit technology, engine, and online service developers in Finland.
