Unreal Engine  By Epic Games HAS A STOREFRONT WITH A MUCH BETTER REVENUE SPLIT FOR DEVELOPERS THAN STEAM.

STEAM STORE'S REVENUE SPLIT:

70% for Devs and 30% for Steam

EPIC GAMES STORE'S REVENUE SPLIT:

88% for Devs and 12% for Epic Games

Additionally, since Dead by Daylight uses the Unreal EngineBehavior pays a 5% royalty for it, however with the Epic Games Store, this would be covered in the 12% for Epic Games.

MAKING THE ACTUAL REVENUE SPLIT WHEN ON STEAM:

65% for Behavior, 30% for Steam, and 5% for Unreal Engine when on the Steam Store

AS OPPOSED TO WHEN ON EPIC GAMES:

88% for Behavior and 12% for Epic Games when on the Epic Games Store

While there are obvious pros and cons for switching storefronts, it seems like there is great incentive to move onto the Epic Games Store.

Moving would result in a 23% increase in retained revenue, so despite a possible decrease in total units sold, it could alleviate the difference.

Furthermore current and future DLCs with Dead by Daylight's already established player base would produce much more revenue for Behavior.

(This is a revival of a two year old post that never got answers as to whether it would be released for Epic Games.)


My question (obviously adding to this post) is "Will this ever happen?" I am a huge supporter or Epic Games more than I am of Steams platform. I own over a hundred titles on epic not including the free games they give away. Would love this game to be supported there where I have many friends (Epic has friends like steam).

UPDATE: They added this game to Epic Games Launcher. <3
