Epic is increasing its revenue split for Marketplace creators up to 88%

Epic Games has announced the new Fortnite Summer Skirmish series, a tournament with a combined prize pool of a staggering $8 Million, which will take place over the span of 8 weeks.

Needless to say, Unreal Engine creators, like Michael Allar of Gamemakin LLC, are excited about the change...

Some developers from within the Unreal Engine Marketplace community have also provided statements detailing their opinions on the revenue sharing changes. "It is incredibly refreshing and even inspiring when a giant like Epic is able to move forward with such a strong move that will not just help sellers on the Unreal Engine Marketplace but should eventually ripple to all sellers of all game assets around the world".

Canfield University's Brighton will be inside during the run but will only take control of the wheel if something goes wrong. From purpose-built drift cars to multi-million dollar classics, nearly every kind of vehicle has ran up the hill.

The marketplace is a store where modellers, animators, sound creators and everything else upload individual assets, which are then purchased by developers to create their game worlds.

"Thanks to both the Marketplace's growth and the success of 'Fortnite, ' Epic now conducts a huge volume of digital commerce", said Sweeney. "This is unreal. It's a really wonderful day for all people using the Unreal Engine Marketplace". And this moment is comparable and somewhat surpasses it. And as of July, more than 6.3 million developers have used Unreal Engine 4 for their projects. The Unreal Engine Marketplace has also seen a 30-percent growth in new sellers over the first half of 2018. There are now over 1,500 creators offering more than 5,000 curated products on the Marketplace.

The best part of this change is that is retroactive, so those who have been making content in the Unreal Engine Marketplace for a few years could find a big chunk of change in their pocket with no extra work completed. In addition, there have been more than 1 million downloads of the free Paragon assets to date, representing $300 billion in total value to the development community.
