Up until now, Epic Games has taken a huge chunk of developers' profits because of the agreement that developers have when making games using Unreal Engine. And now it's doing something remarkable to help out the creators over at the Unreal Engine marketplace.

Developers have received the news very well and are obviously happy about this move from the makers of the engine and of the massively successful battle royale game.

Epic Games encourages user created content, from textures and animations to props, music and whatever else they can think of, selling them on its Unreal Engine Marketplace. In a way, it is also making money for developers.

"Thanks to both the Marketplace's growth and the success of Fortnite, Epic now conducts a huge volume of digital commerce", said Epic founder and CEO Tim Sweeney.

Epic Games' Unreal Engine is ubiquitous in the game development industry, and its various versions have powered many hundreds of major games over the last two decades. And this moment is comparable and somewhat surpasses it.

"Epic has proven time and time again that they do what they can to do right by the sellers on the platform", said Michael Allar, director of Gamemakin LLC. In addition, the use of Unreal Engine 4 has gone up as well, with 6.3 million users as of this month, an increase of over one million users since March. There has also been a 30% growth in active sellers on the marketplace over the first half of this year. There are now over 1,500 creators offering more than 5,000 curated products on the Marketplace.

Epic announced "a sweeping change" to the marketplace yesterday that will boost creators' take on their sales to 88 percent, a significantly above-standard rate increase that applies to all transactions going forward-and (this is the really good bit) to all previous transactions as well, all the way back to the launch of the UE Marketplace in 2014.
