Epic Games paid 505 Games’ parent company, Digital Bros., €9.49 million to make Control exclusive to the Epic Games Store on PC.
News of the payout came from industry analyst, Daniel Ahmad, who also reported that 55% of that payout would go directly to 505 Games, publisher of Control.
“The revenues deriving from the personal computer version of the video game Control were significant,” Digital Bros. disclosed in a (translated) statement. “The game in different versions, for personal computers and consoles, was launched on the 27th August 2019, but the contractual structure with the digital marketplace that required the exclusivity of the video game of the personal computer version has allowed the recognition of revenues already starting from this agreement.”
Unit sales or ship figures for Control on any platform — Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 — have not been disclosed to date.
Control is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
