The first project is a “AAA multi-platform game” already in pre-production, the company said on Thursday, while the second is a “smaller-scale” project set in the same franchise. Both projects are being developed on Remedy’s proprietary Northlight game engine and tools.

 

The games will be released for next-gen consoles and PC in “the next few years,” Remedy said. The Finnish studio will retain ownership of the unannounced games’ IP, while revenue will be split with the publisher.

The projects will be released under Epic Games Publishing, a new multiplatform publishing effort with a developer-first approach.

Quote

Developers retain 100% of all intellectual property and full creative control of their work. Epic Games Publishing will cover up to 100% of development costs, from developer salaries to go-to-market expenses such as quality assurance, localization, marketing, and all publishing costs.

 

It will have 50-50 profit sharing. Epic said developers will earn a fair share for their work. Once costs are recouped, developers earn at least 50% of all profits.

The funny thing is I said Epic as a joke without even knowing it was actually them, but also figured it was them.

Epic gets a lot of well deserved hate, but those terms seem pretty generous. Allowing devs to retain IP is a big deal.

This is less of a fuck you to valve and a fuck you to other publishers.
