Tim Sweeney on Digital Ownership

In discussing the news of the "official" integration of GOG GALAXY 2.0 with the Epic Games Store, Epic CEO Tim Sweeney tweets: "Connect ALL the stores" (thanks Tessier). This is interesting in light of all the Epic Games Store exclusivity deals and came right before the announcement that Rocket League will no longer be offered to new players through Steam when the game makes its free-to-play debut on the Epic Games Store. But he further discusses how such cross-store integration could work in light of concerns about what would happen to players' game libraries should one of these stores close. He offers this tweet on ownership of digital games:
Ultimately, ownership of digital items should be a universal notion, independent of stores and platforms. So much of the digital world today is frustrated by powerful intermediaries whose toll booths obstruct open commerce to keep customers and their purchases locked in.

I definitely worry Epic game store will go out of business MUCH MORE than Steam.

It’s interesting. For Valve, Steam is the endless stream of revenue that drives the rest of their business. It’s also allowed them to make enough mistakes that would have shut down most other companies. Or forced them into a buyout.

For Epic, it’s Fortnite and that revenue won’t last forever. So the clock is ticking for them to take enough of Steam’s market share to generate a sustainable profit.
