Self-service publishing now available for the Epic Games Store!

March 9, 2023
We’re pleased to announce the Epic Games Store is now open to all developers and publishers through the launch of new self-service publishing tools in the Epic Developer Portal. These tools will help developers to efficiently release games, maintain their store presence directly, and reach a growing audience of over 68 million monthly active PC users. Games built on Unreal Engine and released on the Epic Games Store are exempt from engine royalties. 
 

Why publish on the Epic Games Store? 

  • Access an audience of 68 million monthly active PC users from all over the world.
  • Developers receive 88% of the revenue for the games sold through Epic Games Store with an option to use your own or a third-party payment solution for in-app purchases to receive up to 100% of the revenue generated from in-app purchases.
  • Our Developer Portal has an integrated process for obtaining IARC ratings at no additional cost to you.
  • Epic provides professional localization for your game pages at no additional cost. Request this service through a Developer Portal support ticket.
  • The Support-A-Creator affiliate program enables you to incentivize content creators and amplify your game outside of the store by sharing a percentage of your revenue with them.
  • For games built on Unreal Engine, engine royalty fees are waived for in-store purchases using Epic's payment processor. In-app purchases and products using their own payment processor are not exempt from engine royalties.

There’s never been a better time to take your PC game from dream to reality. Start the journey today.
