yea, but then why would they say “3rd party games” for 250mill, isn’t all games on epic third party?, like, how many self published games, besides fortnite, is epic actually doing?


#288

It has nothing to do with Fortnite, for sure, cuz as you can see here, fortnite made $200 million in May 2019 alone:

aaaaaaah, back to work, deadline approacing :robot:


#289

I was trying to figure that out as well… who knows if they consider their exclusives to be first-party or not…

I am more astounded by the 200+ Million free game copies claimed, that’s a mind-numbing number…


#290

yea i thought that aswell maybe, but seems like a weird blunder to make, since that’s not what first party means :thinking:


#291

I completely agree with that. Yet it would make sense that the exclusives would net them the most amount of money, otherwise, why would they even bother doing it.

A blunder or a trivial amalgamation of meaning, only they can tell us if they decided to go more in depth…


#292

ahaha i just saw this
it’s merely cod mw2 boycott syndrome in full effect :rofl: consumers gotta consume :joy:


#293

Maybe third-party means spent in-game, for games like Dauntless?


#294

Epic has one premium game on the store: https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/shadow-complex/home

It looks like @Mosky is right, and the $251M is most likely in-app purchases in third-party games on Epic’s platform.
