Epic Games Store Update May 2019

Epic Games Store Update

We want to thank gamers, developers, and publishers for making April the biggest month so far for the Epic Games store!

Saber Interactive’s World War Z has sold over 320,000 copies on the Epic Games store so far, with 250,000 in its first week. 

Satisfactory launched in Early Access a little over a month ago. Early projections of its popularity were slightly underestimated: this has been Coffee Stain’s best PC launch ever!

Anno 1800 from Ubisoft, and Metro: Exodus from 4A Games, had the best PC launches in their respective franchise’s history. Congratulations to Metro: Exodus for leading the way as the top-grossing Epic Games store title.

We also have a delay to announce. A month ago we published the Epic Games Store roadmap to share our release plans for new store features. We’ve shifted features targeted for April to May and June as development efforts have focused on supporting online features required for new game launches. Be on the lookout for future updates and regularly check out the “Recently Shipped” section of the Trello Board to keep tabs on our progress.

The partnership between Humble Bundle and Epic that was announced at GDC is now bearing fruit. Today you can buy Metro Exodus and Dangerous Driving, and pre-purchase Borderlands 3 at the Humble Store; more games are coming!

Since launch, the Epic Games store has offered a new free game every two weeks, leading to more than 25 million free game installs so far. We’re humbled by the overwhelming response and we will continue to support developers and publishers in releasing awesome games for free throughout 2019.

We at Epic Games are grateful for the support of all gamers, developers, and publishers for using the Epic Games store and for placing trust in Epic as we build a new ecosystem for PC gaming.
