How much did Epic Games which gave GTA 5 for free pay

Epic Games, which recently opened its own digital game store and rivals Steam, distributes free games every week. This campaign to attract new players is increasing the popularity of the platform, which no one initially gave a chance to.

Have you ever thought about how much Epic Games pays for these games? A document filed in the ongoing Apple case revealed how much the company paid developers.

Epic Games gives free games to 104 million people

Epic Games, which is suing Apple for App Store commissions at the beginning of 2020, continues its fight. While the ongoing litigation process remains unclear for both companies, new details are emerging. One of these details was the document showing how much the company paid game developers for free productions.

The documents, obtained by GamerDiscoverCo, a research company, were shared by the company’s founder, Simon Carless. The document revealed how much Epic Games paid developers between January and September 2019.

According to this document, Epic Games paid developers $11,658,000 for free games in 2019. 104 million users add free games to their library, of which 5 million are first-time sign-ups. Considering the number of people using the platform, it is possible to say that the free game campaign was successful.

Another notable detail in the document is the amounts paid for the games. For example, the company paid $1.5 million for Batman Arkham games developed by Warner Bros., and never paid for Ubisoft’s production of For Honor. Where these differences originate or what Epic Games considers when paying developers remains a mystery.
