Official Announcement:

Today, we are happy to announce that ArtStation will join the Epic Games family. Together, we will accelerate the development and growth of the global creator community. This partnership emphasizes the mission of Epic and ArtStation, which is to provide creators with tools and platforms to enable them to thrive.

ArtStation will remain an independent brand platform owned by Epic Games and will continue its mission of empowering creators to flourish. You can still use this platform as you do today, and we will continue to open it to creators in all verticals, including 2D and 3D creators – including those who don’t use Unreal Engine. We will actively recruit and grow the ArtStation team. We are committed to improving this platform, and now as part of Epic, we will be able to do more.
