The executive Tim Sweeney, the CEO of Epic Games and head of Epic Games Store, has spoken through his personal Twitter account about the current state of online stores on PC, and has done so in a certain aggressive with respect to their opponents .
” Now the critics with Epic Games Store meet here to complain ” Sweeney stated in reference to a thread in which he talked about the new exclusive of his shop, a video game about a goose called Untitled Goose Game, which will also appear on Switch, but will only appear in Sweeney’s online store and company in the PC version.
” The fact is that the best video games about the Epic Games Store, as long as the stores that support us, continue to pluck the developers, “said the executive in clear reference to the profit margins that his store offers with respect to its main opponents: GOG, Steam, Origi n …
Sweeney recalled that stores like Steam are left with 30% of the income of a certain game as the price for hosting it in their online store, while they only charge 12% to the developers “We made a big profit with those marginal costs, we also invested in growing the business through free, exclusive titles and mega-discounts,” said Sweeney.
From Epic they are happy with the performance of their store, for the moment, and recently they have announced how they have sold the latest exclusives of Epic Games Store.
Now the Epic Games store critics are flocking here to grouse. But, fact is, the best goose games will be on EGS, while the stores they support continue to fleece developers.
