Just how a lot is Epic Games Store exclusivity price? That’s one of many main questions surrounding the seemingly fixed bulletins about this or that PC recreation being unique to the Fortnite builders’ digital storefront, and one which largely stays veiled backstage of enterprise dealings. It would seem, nevertheless, that the quantity paid for the latest recreation Control to grow to be a title unique to the Epic Games Store has been revealed, and it is greater than $10 million.
The numbers behind the deal come by the use of a latest monetary report from the mum or dad firm of Control writer 505 Games, Digital Bros. The full report is in Italian, however the numbers given together with numerous firm names — and a number of other tough, on-line translations — point out Epic Games paid €9.49 million, which comes out to about $10.45 million, for what seems to be the exclusivity settlement on Control. (There is, in fact, a small probability that this has been misreported elsewhere or mistranslated, but it surely seems legit.)
If correct, that is a hefty chunk of change simply to be sure that the sport solely launched through a single PC storefront. There’s no telling whether or not it’s going to finally present up on different shops, however there’s each chance that the sport may finally find yourself elsewhere after some kind of timed-exclusivity settlement. And that does not even take into consideration that Control can be out there on the PlayStation Four and Xbox One proper now.
