This announcement was soon followed by a significant funding round for Epic Games, amounting to US$2 billion, which was contributed by Sony and Kirkbi, the investment group of the Lego Group's founding family, the Kirk Kristiansen.

Emphasising family-friendly gaming

Ahead of the Lego Fortnite release, Epic Games has been adjusting Fortnite to appeal more to younger players. In November, the company introduced age ratings for its game experiences.
