If you talk to anyone that's met Tim, he's not at all driven by money. He never was.
Was that before or after Fortnite?
What part of Fortnite is greedy? I've only played it a bit, but it never asked me for money, unless I wanted a dance or something, but why would I want a dance or something?
Regardless, do you think he's making the decisions on Fortnite?
Oh please. Stop automatically implying I meant greed. The meaning behind the question is simple. Before Fortnite, Epic made X-amount annually. After, they made significantly more. The EGS empire is birthed off the Fortnite profits. To imply that Tim isn't driven by money is foolish. He's a CEO. He has ONE job. Drive growth and profit for his company.
I think it is cool that Tim is huge into conservation. "Sweeney has bought large tracts of land in different parks, largely in North Carolina; such as Mount Mitchell State Park, and Box Creek Wilderness and other large tracts of land to connect national parks and stop development into commercial areas. He has also donated millions on conservation projects in North Carolina and has made statements about his intent to turn a majority of the land into permanent nature conservation. He has also detailed his future plan is to protect a large amount of rare plant and wildlife species in the area, and to connect South Mountains State Park to Chimney Rock, by purchasing land and donating conservation easements to the US Fish and Wildlife Service."

That's noble. I wish he was more noble with EGS.
You realize that Epic is privately held, right? Privately held CEOs do not have the same fiduciary duty.
And the big windfall they got was selling to Tencent, more than Fortnite. Fortnite has given them a lot, and but the bulk of the wealth is on paper. Tencent made their shareholders legitimately rich (hence why so few remained.)
You're always angry. I don't think you always understand the issues you're angry at. You certainly don't understand the people involved. Thinking that everything Epic does is the brainchild of the CEO seems foolish.
