If I sell my game to another company what do I owe EPIC?
If I make a game and sell all of its rights to another company for them to distribute and support in the future, what money am I required to pay to EPIC. I feel it's safe to assume they will take 5% of that sale, but what happens after that. Do the 5% fees for future sales fall to the purchaser, or am I still responsible to pay the 5% on those future profits as well? I guess another way to look at it is, Does the licensing agreement transfer to the purchaser at that time?

The short answer is that one licensee will need to be responsible for Product royalties under the EULA. In the case you describe, you'd want to make sure that the acquirer of the game takes a UE4 license and assumes responsibility for royalties going forward. Otherwise, you owe them.
Also note that if you are truly selling the game, and providing source code along with it, the acquirer also needs to be a UE4 licensee in order to be able to receive the code.
