epic games 100 million

However, this is only the beginning.

Last year we were dealing with a real shake on the digital gaming market. Undoubtedly, one of the most important events was the dynamic flourishing of the platform Epic Games Store, which introduced a bit of confusion and controversy. After more than a year from the premiere, the owners of the store boasted several statistics.

It turns out that the Epic Games Store accumulated together 108 million users generating 680 million dollars of revenue. Apparently $ 251 million comes from selling other developers' games. However, it cannot be hidden that the platform also tempted consumers with free productions.

Exactly 73 titles were distributed and received over 200 million times. By the way – do you remember that the "giving away" campaign was to last until the end of 2019? The company changed its mind and … decided to provide free games for at least 12 months. You can rub your hands.

However, there is still a long way to go before the Epic Games Store. Service owners must constantly work on its development, because the competition is not sleeping. The platform does not yet have such a hot place on the market as Steam, which has become a symbol of digital distribution. Nobody seems to predict the situation in this industry at the end of 2020.
