Exciting news for mobile gamers and developers alike as Epic Games has officially announced the upcoming launch of its renowned Epic Games Store (EGS) on both iOS and Android platforms later this year. For those unfamiliar, EGS serves as a popular alternative to platforms like Steam, offering a diverse array of games for players to enjoy.

Epic Games Store Launching on iOS and Android

One of the standout features of the Epic Games Store is its commitment to fair terms for developers. Epic has pledged to provide developers with an enticing revenue split, allowing them to retain 88% of their earnings while Epic takes only a 12% cut. This stands in contrast to platforms like Google, which typically charge a 15% commission on the first $1 million in revenue, escalating to 30% thereafter.

Moreover, developers have the option to retain 100% of their revenue if they opt to utilize their own payment systems for in-app purchases, providing them with even greater flexibility and control over their monetization strategies.

While details regarding the store’s appearance on Android and the lineup of available games remain scarce, one title that players can expect to see is Fortnite, which is currently distributed through the Epic Games Launcher.

The situation with iOS is a bit more complex due to Apple’s previous actions against Epic, including the temporary shutdown of its developer account. However, following an EU order, Apple reinstated Epic’s developer account, signaling that the tech giant is moving forward with its plans to bring the Epic Games Store to iOS.

As anticipation builds for the arrival of the Epic Games Store on mobile devices, gamers can look forward to accessing a diverse selection of titles while developers can take advantage of fairer revenue sharing models and greater flexibility in monetization strategies. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting development in the world of mobile gaming.


Pokdepinion: While in some ways it could be considered a “relaunch”, I do wonder if they plan on running a special promotion to really make an impact as soon as it’s launched. Good revenue split is one thing but to get people to use their app store is another thing, especially with PC gamers already disliking what they have.
