Early life and education
Darren spent his entire childhood in North Carolina alongside his parents and his brothers Adam and Andrew Sugg – he hasn’t talked much about his family, as he prefers to keep them away from the media’s attention.
Darren started playing video games at a very young age, and became fascinated by them – he was already an avid gamer when he enrolled at high school, but wanted to work on making video games rather than just playing them.
After 1996 when he matriculated from a local high school, he enrolled at the Marist College, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communication and multimedia programming.
Career of a game developer
Darren’s career began soon afterwards – his first notable work was on “The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar” video game – although the idea for the game wasn’t his, he was part of the main development team responsible for the games creation. After the first part, the team worked on a sequel to the game entitled “The Lord of the Rings Online: Mines of Moria”, before Darren moved on to work for the Turbine company as their game system developer.
Things became a lot better for Darren after he was invited to become part of The Amazing Society studio, where he served as their senior designer – some of the most popular games he has created with them include “Gears of War: Juggernaut”, “Marvel’s Super Hero Squad Online”, and “Shadow Complex: Remastered”.
Today, Darren is noted for creating the very popular survival video game entitled “Fortnite” – his work on the game began in 2012, and he then joined the Epic Games company which launched his new game as soon as it was ready.
While “Fortnite” requires regular maintenance because it is played by so many people, Darren is still working on other games – he is currently busy with the new “Fortnite: Save the World” game mode, which has been made available to people who paid for it on 25 July 2019, and will be free-to-play by the end of 2019.
Love life and girlfriend
Darren is very secretive regarding his personal matters and hasn’t shared any details when it comes to his past and present girlfriends with the public, however, there are still some rumors circulating the internet.
Darren has been rumored to be dating a woman who is working for the Epic Games company, and is a game developer as well – the two met the day Darren began working for the company, and allegedly started dating just a couple of days later. However, this rumor hasn’t been confirmed by Darren, and nothing is known about the relationship or the woman in question.
Darren was also rumored to be married in 2018 but there was no proof found to support this rumor – as he hasn’t talked about his personal matters and judging by his tweets on Twitter, Darren is currently single, he hasn’t so far married, and doesn’t have any kids.
Hobbies and interests
Darren is mostly focused on the work he does on his computer, and rarely finds time for anything else other than his game designing work.
Darren is a big fan of blues and jazz music, and often listens to a variety of artists while he is working on his games – some of his favorite singers include Billie Holiday and Charlie Parker. He was never much interested in sports – he tried playing soccer in high school, but this didn’t work out for him, as even then he was more focused and interested in video games.

As is rather normal for software and game developers, Darren doesn’t get to spend much time outdoors, and is not much of a traveler either – it is believed that he has never left the US, but is planning on travelling to Europe in the upcoming years.
Darren is a lover of animals, and has a pet cat which he often brings to work, but its name is unknown.
Darren is currently 42 years old. He has short brown hair and brown eyes, while his height and weight are not known. He almost always wears a cap on his head, and has a couple of tattoos inked onto his body.
Social media presence
Darren is not very active on the internet, but still has a couple of social media network accounts, which he uses to keep his fans informed about the upcoming changes and updates to the “Fortnite” video game.
Darren launched his Twitter account in August 2011, and has gathered more than 6,800 followers and tweeted nearly 2,500 times. He goes by the name “theepicgame” on his Instagram account, where he has gathered only around 170 followers, and uploaded just four pictures onto it – Darren doesn’t seem to have a page or profile on Facebook.
