Epic also touts it will cover to up 100 percent of development costs including developer salaries, quality assurance, localization, marketing, publishing costs, and more.

Remedy Entertainment is coming off of its award-winning action title Control, which was an Epic Games Store exclusive on PC when it launched in August. Playdead has released two award-winning titles: 2010's Limbo and 2016's Inside. Finally, Gen Design is the studio headed by the visionary developer behind Shadow of the Colossus and Ico, Fumito Ueda.
