    Today Epic Games announced its new online store pioneering an 88/12% revenue split in favor of developers. The store will launch soon with a hand-curated set of games on PC and Mac, and will open up more broadly to additional games and other open platforms throughout 2019.

    The Epic Games store is open to games developed with any game engine, and the first releases span Unreal, Unity and other engines. For games made with Unreal Engine, Epic will waive all engine royalties on revenue generated through the store.

    A unique feature of the Epic Games store is the Support-A-Creator program that connects developers with over 10,000 creators, such as YouTube video makers and Twitch streamers. The Support-A-Creator program rewards creators for bringing exposure to game developers. For more details on the program, visit https://www.epicgames.com/fortnite/en-US/news/support-a-creator-faq.

    "As a developer ourselves, we have always wanted a platform with great economics that connects us directly with our players," said Epic Games founder and CEO, Tim Sweeney. "Thanks to the success of Fortnite, we now have this and are ready to share it with other developers."

    More details on upcoming game releases will be revealed at The Game Awards this Thursday, December 6th. Stay tuned to epicgames.com for more information.
