Epic offering 100% rev share for back catalogue titles

Fortnite giant Epic Games is now offering 100 per cent revenue to developers and publishers to sell their back catalogue titles on its storefront.

The scheme – dubbed Now On Epic – would see companies keep all the revenue from sales of their games for the first six months on the company's platform. The initiative applies to any games released before October 31st, 2023 on any other third-party PC platform or subscription service.

One or two games aren't eligible to be part of the Now On Epic program, however. Developers or publishers must bring at least three titles to the Epic Game Store to be able to take part.

This launch comes alongside the Epic First Run, a scheme that is looking for companies to self-publish their projects exclusively on the Fortnite giant's storefront via the Epic Developer portal.

This news comes in the wake of Epic announcing it will be making substantial layoffs.
