Epic Games Store Claims 85M Users

At a panel in the Game Developers Conference, Epic Game revealed that the Epic Games Store now has 85 million users making use of the store, according to their internal metrics. TweakTown has details from the panel, noting that Steam claims about 250 million registered users, 90 million of whom play at least monthly, and 45 million of whom play daily. They also raise questions about how many of Epic Games Stores users are just there to play Fortnite and grab free games, though its fair to note that other game stores like Steam have F2P exclusives and freebie giveaways as well. On the other hand, Epic boasts 55 million Creators, which is 65% of their user base. The article includes a PowerPoint screen from the panel with some interesting statistics, including word that 40% of Epic's users do not have Steam, which seems counterintuitive. Here are five factoids:

  • 85M Epic Games store users on PC
  • 40% do not have Steam *
  • 68% do not use Steam regularly *
    (more Epic PC users regularly play on consoles than on Steam)
  • 55M Registered Creators
  • 41M players supporting Creators
    (including Fortnite across all platforms)

    *Based on user surveys (August 2018, January 2019)

Yeah, I see a lot of stats that got rolled into this from all the non
pc gamers that started playing Fortnite over the last year or 2. Doesnt really count as a win for the store. I'd rather see the stats to date since the announcement of the store. Epic needs to make their store better instead of trying to have a dick measuring contest with the undisputed champion of games distribution.

That said I've used the Epic store for a game or 2 and it's ok. 5/10
