Through a strategic licensing partnership, Xsolla Capital and Epic Games join forces to empower independent video game developers with access to a wealth of resources.
Fostering Success for Independent Developers
Xsolla Capital, a $50 million royalty investment fund focused on video games, and Epic Games, creator of Unreal Engine 4 (UE4) and games across many genres and platforms, are ecstatic to announce our partnership to help UE4 developers bring their titles to market. Xsolla Capital and Epic’s mutual goal is to foster success for independent developers who want to self-publish their games while keeping their creative vision.
Xsolla Capital will be providing Unreal Engine 4 indie developers with financial and marketing resources as well as covering the costs of custom Unreal Engine licensing, reducing royalties, and providing direct technical support through the Unreal Developer Network (UDN). Developers will also benefit from all of Xsolla’s services, which include worldwide payment solutions, 24/7 international customer support, the #1 anti-fraud system in the gaming industry, distribution options, data visualization, and more.
Making of a Great Partnership
“Now is the perfect time for Xsolla to partner with our team to bring outstanding independent games to market,” said Mike Gamble, European territory manager at Epic Games. “Since taking Unreal Engine 4 free two years ago, we’ve seen an enormous rise in high-quality titles made by small teams, and Xsolla is able to share in that success by allowing developers to maintain creative control while receiving many of the benefits a traditional publishing arrangement would provide.”
“Xsolla Capital is happy to help Unreal Engine 4 game developers deliver their titles to a wider audience. We’ve seen many independent developers embracing UE4 in new and emerging game genres,” said Dmitri Bourkovski, partner at Xsolla Capital. “Xsolla Capital is excited to be a part of bringing these next-level indie titles to existing and expanding game audiences.”
