  • Epic Games (Fortnite) annonce un concurrent de Steam pour acheter des jeux

Connu pour ses jeux comme Unreal, Gears of War et plus récemment l'incontournable Fortnite, Epic Games est un studio à plusieurs casquettes, car c'est aussi lui qui commercialise l'Unreal Engine. Si les développeurs activent l'option, les hommes-sandwich - pardon "ïnfluenceurs" - qui feront la promo de leur jeu sur Youtube recevront une commission sur les ventes. La boutique Epic Games ouvrira ses portes en 2019, sur Mac et PC pour commencer, puis sur Android et les autres " plateformes ouvertes " dans le courant de l'année prochaine (comprendre: pas sur iOS).

C'est une toute nouvelle façon de s'investir dans le monde de Fortnite qui sera disponible le 6 décembre.

La boutique prendra une commission de 12% sur les prix des jeux, 88% reviendront donc dans les poches des développeurs.

Epic Games (Fortnite) annonce un concurrent de Steam pour acheter des jeux

La répartition des revenus entre distributeur et développeur selon Epic Games.

Dans les colonnes de Game Informer, Tim Sweeney, patron d'Epic Games, déclare que si la répartition 70/30 était révolutionnaire lors de la phase de décollage de Steam, elle n'est plus adaptée à l'économie du marché d'aujourd'hui. En outre, les développeurs pourront facilement contacter des YouTubeurs ou créateurs sur Twitch pour qu'ils postent des vidéos sur leurs jeux. Aussi la promesse d'une plate-forme mettant à l'honneur des jeux vidéo " sélectionnés à la main " et rétribuant plus généreusement ses créateurs a tout d'une panacée. Epic abandonnera ainsi son prélèvement de 5% si elles sont via sa plateforme. Pour favoriser son produit maison, Epic Games accordera toutefois un bonus. Au début du mois, Valve a mis à jour sa politique de répartition, uniquement pour les jeux à succès, passant ainsi le partage à 25/75% si le titre vendu dépasse les 10 millions de dollars de recette, et 20/80% si la barre des 50 millions de dollars a été atteinte.

Avec son nouveau modèle de partage de revenus, Valve a en quelque sorte privilégié les grands studios tout en délaissant les petits développeurs, ces derniers sont toujours contraints à payer 3$ pour chaque 10$ de ventes.
