To recall, the Epic Games Store managed to accrue over 194 million users back in 2021, out of which the company claimed to have 31.1 million daily active users and peak concurrent users touched 13.2 million. It also revealed that it had 62 million monthly active users in December.

Epic Games Store launched back in December 2018, and since then the company has put in a huge amount of resources to grow the platform. A document from the Epic vs Apple trial showcased that the company had $330 million in unrecouped costs in 2020 alone. This amount was for paying developers to give away their games in its store. Last year, Epic gave away 89 different titles and 765 million free games overall.

Another document from the lawsuit showcased that more than 7 million people hopped on to the Epic Games Store because of its Grand Theft Auto V giveaway. There seems to be no stopping, considering that Epic has already announced that it will continue to give away free games in 2022 also.

Epic Games has revealed that players spent around $840 million in its store in 2021, with over a third of the amount being spent on third-party games. The biggest third-party games on the store for 2021 were Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, Hitman 3, Far Cry 6, Genshin Impact, Darkest Dungeon, Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Chivalry 2 and GTA V.
