Epic Games announces new headquarters at Cary Towne Center site
Epic Games, the company best known for its smash hit Fortnite, announced on Sunday it plans to convert Cary Towne Center mall into its new campus.Posted — Updated
The announcement stirred buzz in the community, with some feeling the headquarters will be a much better use of space that’s been struggling to stay open over the years. However, some locals are disappointed about losing stores and venues for residents.
Epic Games currently operates on Crossroads Boulevard in Cary. By transitioning to the mall property, it will house office buildings and recreational spaces.
Not everyone is on board. One viewer on WRAL’s Facebook page chimed in, calling the announcement "devastating news for those who have been waiting for Cary Towne Center to be turned into something nice."
In 2018, furniture store IKEA had plans to take over the mall but pulled out.
Only a few stores currently remain open at Cary Towne Center, including Belk. Most of the mall is blocked off.
