Party’s over for Houseparty as Epic Games announces imminent shutdown

Remember Houseparty? The social app that allowed you to play games with friends in a video chatroom gained almost overnight popularity at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic as a means for people to keep in touch, motivating Fortnite maker Epic Games to purchase the app for $35 million back in 2019. 

As it turns out, that investment may have been short-lived as an Epic Games representative has informed TechCrunch that it plans to shut the app down in October of this year, including its ‘Fortnite Mode’ feature.
