Epic Games will publish new titles from three well-known and respected game studios: Gen Design (maker of The Last Guardian), Playdead (Inside, Limbo), and Remedy Entertainment (Control). The projects will be released under Epic Games Publishing, a new multiplatform publishing effort with a developer-first approach.


Developers retain 100% of all intellectual property and full creative control of their work. Epic Games Publishing will cover up to 100% of development costs, from developer salaries to go-to-market expenses such as quality assurance, localization, marketing, and all publishing costs.

It will have 50-50 profit sharing. Epic said developers will earn a fair share for their work. Once costs are recouped, developers earn at least 50% of all profits.


Additional information, development partners, and games will be announced in the coming months.

Epic must have incredible amounts of cash. Covering "up to 100%" of development costs :o . I guess they're seeking out "surefire" hits so that their circa 50% of the profits really pays off.

The more developers Epic makes deals with, the more money I save 8-)
