Epic Games Store tops 100m customer milestone
It’s been slightly over a year since Epic released its own PC games store in December 2018 – yet even in that relatively short time, it seems the platform has managed to rack up some impressive stats.
Thanks to an infographic released by Epic today, we now know that the store has 108m customers, who have spent a total of $680m (£523m) in-store. It seems likely much of this success is due to Fortnite, as the total spent by players on third-party games is $251m (£193m).
While we don’t have any particularly up-to-date figures for Steam, we do know that in January last year it reported having 90m monthly users. If you’re hoping to compare, however, it’s worth noting that Steam’s figure could now be larger – while Epic’s 108m figure does not necessarily reflect active users.
