Epic Games has launched a motivating campaign to encourage game developers to sell their games on the Epic Games Store. This campaign, titled “Now On Epic,” is aimed at bringing older games that are currently being sold on other online stores to the Epic Games Store. The benefit for developers is that they will not have to share any revenue for a period of 6 months. After that, the revenue share will be set at a standard rate of 12%, which is the regular rate on the Epic Games Store.
Additionally, Epic Games is introducing “Epic First Run,” a program that allows developers to exclusively sell their new games on the Epic Games Store. During the first 6 months, developers will receive full revenue from sales. After that period, they can choose to continue selling the game conventionally or switch to the regular revenue share model of 12%.
According to Epic Games, the store currently has 230 million users and 68 million active users per month. This presents an exciting opportunity for game developers to tap into a new revenue stream. As a result, Epic Games is inviting game developers from around the world to participate in this campaign and sell their games on the platform.

They are also introducing “Epic First Run,” which allows exclusive sales on their store for the first 6 months.
