At the end of 2019, Epic Games has given away 73 free games, each available for a one-two week period. A collective 200 million copies of those games have been claimed by customers. Since the Epic Games Store gets 12% of all sales on its store, why doesn’t it want to SELL those games, rather than give them away for free?
On this channel we review the free games from Epic each week, so we thought we’d take a step back and discuss the Epic strategy, how they’ve done so far, and whether this approach makes sense.
