After winning the lawsuit against Google, Tim Sweeney, CEO of Epic Games, gave an interview to The Verge and revealed that the Epic Games Store is catching up to Steam in terms of number of users. According to the executive, his online store reached 80 million active users compared to the competitor’s 120 million.
During the interview, Sweeney said that the goal is to continue investing heavily in the Epic Games Store, as they are quickly catching up to Steam.
“(…) with the Epic Games Store, we will continue to invest heavily here. The Epic Games Store is an untold behind-the-scenes success story. Since its launch in 2018, we now have 80 million monthly active users. Steam has 120 million, so we’re catching up quickly,” said the Epic CEO.
Epic Games continues with an aggressive strategy to compete with Steam, offering weekly free games, better conditions for developers to distribute their games on the Epic Games Store and also seeking exclusivity with large companies, as happened with the launch of Alan Wake 2 for PC, EGS exclusive.
Remembering that the Christmas period is also approaching, a time when the Epic Games Store, instead of offering one free game per week, offers one game per day – generally in the last two weeks of the year.
