Epic Games announces new mobile game in collaboration with Bad Robot Games

Fortnite creator Epic has revealed a new mobile game developed in collaboration with J.J. Abrams’ game development company Bad Robot Games. Production studio Bad Robot was formed back in 2018 with funding from Epic investor Tencent and have collaborated earlier with Epic to debut a trailer of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker within Fortnite. On the official Spyjinx site, Epic Games says that the game has strategy and RPG gameplay as players try to become a spy mastermind. Players will create a base, fill the rooms in their base with “Artifacts,” and will try to stop other players from stealing them. Spyjinx allows players to train spies with different abilities and gadgets and can also try to get into other players’ bases. Spiyjinx beta launches on iOS in Malaysia this week, and it will soon be coming to Australia. Epic Games hasn’t confirmed anything about a Spyjinx release on Android devices or in other countries, but tells fans to sign up as it will email them when that changes. Choosing to release Fortnite on iOS first led to many clone games on Android and fans will be hoping that this doesn’t happen again with Spyjinx. The features and the game playing theme associated with the Spyjinx is yet to clear.
