Epic Games Announces Store Launch, 88% Revenue Share with Developers

Epic Games announced Tuesday the launch of their new online store, which will have an 88 to 12 percent split for developers.

A date for the store opening has not been released, but a statement from Epic said it will launch soon and will include, “a hand-curated set of games on PC and Mac and will open up more broadly to additional games and other open platforms throughout 2019.”

Games developed with any game engine are allowed in the store, but the first releases include Unreal, Unity and others.

Epic has stated they will not take a profit from any of the games made with Unreal Engine.

“As a developer ourselves, we have always wanted a platform with great economics that connects us directly with our players,” Epic Games founder and CEO, Tim Sweeney, said. “Thanks to the success of Fortnite, we now have this and are ready to share it with other developers.”

Applied DNA Builds Recurring Revenue in Synthetic Fiber Market

Applied DNA Sciences has delivered its third shipment against continuing purchase orders for molecular tags used to protect supply chains for polyethylene terephthalate man-made fibers from master batch to finished goods.
With recurring, non-seasonal orders, this synthetics supply chain experience has accelerated contract discussions in progress with other man-made fiber segment manufacturers.
“Molecular tags can be used to track high-quality and high-performance grades of PET, where the specifications are demanding,” said James Hayward, president and chief executive officer of Applied DNA, which provides DNA-based supply-chain, anticounterfeiting and antitheft technology, product genotyping and product authentication solutions. “Unlike paper or electronic certificates, these molecular certificates carry the identifying unalterable information in or on the product, thereby providing assurances to governments and consumers alike.”
