Epic Games Store Coming to Android and iOS Devices This Year

Epic Games Store

Epic Games has officially announced the expansion of its popular Epic Games Store to Android and iOS devices. The news broke during the State of Unreal event at GDC ’24, leaving gamers and developers buzzing with excitement.

What We Know So Far

  • Epic Games has been making waves in the gaming industry with its aggressive approach to digital distribution. Now, it’s taking the battle to mobile platforms.
  • The Epic Games Store will be available on Android later this year, promising the same fair terms that have made it a hit on PC. Developers will keep 88% of their revenue, while Epic takes only 12%.
  • This revenue split significantly undercuts the fees charged by the Google Play Store, where some developers pay up to 30%. By offering a more developer-friendly model, Epic aims to disrupt the status quo.
  • But that’s not all! The store will also make its way to iOS in the European Union, providing an alternative app marketplace for Apple users.
  • The upcoming Epic Games Store for Android will allow apps and games to sell in-app purchases independently, enabling developers to retain 100% of earned revenue.
  • It’s important to note that this is different from the existing Epic Games Launcher on Android, which has been available since 2019 and primarily serves as a hub for downloading and updating games like Fortnite.
  • The mobile version of the Epic Games Store will be a true multi-platform experience, working seamlessly across AndroidiOSPC, and macOS.
  • While we’ve seen some conceptual mockups of what the store might look like on mobile, the actual features and availability details are still under wraps.

The Battle for Fairness

  • Epic Games isn’t shy about its intentions. By offering the same revenue split to developers of all sizes, it aims to compete head-on with the Google Play Store.
  • Google’s fees range from 15% to 30%, depending on revenue levels. In contrast, Epic’s 88/12 split is a game-changer, leveling the playing field for developers.
  • The Epic Games Store will become the first-ever game-focused, multi-platform store, catering to gamers across different devices. Whether you’re on your Android phoneiPhone, or PC, expect a curated selection of amazing games.

What’s Next for Epic Games Store?

  • Gamers and developers alike are eagerly awaiting more information about the store’s features, user experience, and launch date.
  • As we count down the days, one thing is clear: Epic Games is determined to redefine the mobile gaming landscape. Get ready for a new era of gaming convenience and fairness!
