More from Tim Sweeney on the Epic Games Store

We reported a roundup of Tim Sweeney tweets last week, and as noted on DSOGaming, the Epic Games CEO continues to answer questions about the Epic Games Store, including an expansion of his explanation of why partnering with Chinese publisher Tencent does not expose their customers to spying. Here's another roundup of pertinent tweets:
11:34 AM - Apr 10, 2019: "The Epic Games store is open to games powered by all engines. Developers are free to use whatever online services they prefer including SteamWorks. Epic’s online services are open to all games using any engine, any platform, and any store. See: Epic Online Services."

: "Investors have access to Epic’s financial statements. For an example what’s in a company’s financial statement, look up EA’s financial statement online (it’s publicly available). Investors do not have access to Epic customer data."

: "Tencent has no access to customer data. The Terms of Service references data shared between Epic’s wholly owned international subsidiaries (which exist to process purchases and pay tax around the world). Tencent is an investor only and is not covered by that language."

: Epic Games login data has not been leaked. Rather, hackers use databases of email address and password combinations that were leaked from other sites, and attempt to login to Epic and other services using the same credentials. (Always use a unique password everywhere.)

: Yes, Epic is investing heavily to bring free games and exclusives to the store to bring in new gamers and grow the store customer base. Simultaneously we’re building lots of features, but are going full speed ahead on games without waiting. That’s the essence of our strategy.

: Making older Epic games available on the Epic Games store is completely logical and something we’re looking into in the background, but this isn’t coming shortly.

: "Later in 2019, sorry we can’t move faster!" (In response to a question about when the store will accept submissions from smaller indie developers.)
