Epic Games is adding more third-party apps to the Epic Games Store today, including one for indie games storefront Itch.io.
An Epic Games representative confirmed for Polygon that the Unreal Engine and Fortnite maker will not take any percentage of revenue generated through the Itch.io app. (Epic ordinarily takes a 12% share of all revenue from games sold through the Epic Games Store.)
Platform revenue shares have been a key factor in Epic’s ongoing legal battles with Google and Apple.
