The software and gaming development company Epic has announced the launch of a new retail platform.

The main characteristic of this new company are the terms of competitive income distribution; the developers will keep a whopping 88 percent of the cash that comes from the games, compared to 12 percent going to Epic. The store is scheduled to be launched “soon” with a curated selection of games, and will open to other projects and platforms throughout the next year. While the initial release was vague on this issue, the official announcement on the Epic site makes it clear that it will launch on Android in 2019.

“As developers, we’ve always wanted a platform with a great economy that connects us directly with our players,” said Epic Games founder and CEO Tim Sweeney (pictured).

“Thanks to the success of Fortnite, we now have this and are ready to share it with other developers.”
