Why Does Epic Games Give Away So Many Free Games?!

#Free Epic Games in 2020 #Epic vs. Steam #Free PC games #Epic game store in 2019 #Gaming
At the end of 2019, Epic Games has given away 73 free games, each available for a one-two week period. A collective 200 million copies of those games have been claimed by customers. Since the Epic Games Store gets 12% of all sales on its store, why doesn't it want to SELL those games, rather than give them away for free?.
On this channel we review the free games from Epic each week, so we thought we'd take a step back and discuss the Epic strategy, how they've done so far, and whether this approach makes sense..
Let us know what you think, and if you'd like more videos like this!.

They want to build a Player base, hence they are giving free games, so users have a few games on their Epic Games library.
Consumers will not promptly abandon Steam without a reason and migrate to Epic games, when they invested money and time building a library on Steam.
Epic games is using Exclusives and Free giveaways to attract new consumers.

I think they gave out assassinโ€™s creed syndicate to hook you on the assassins creed franchise, then give a sale on assassinโ€™s creed odyssey and origin.

They give away games mostly for promotion or for desperate games that need money from DLC, so GTA 6 may be announced sometime soon!

Also donโ€™t question my name I did this to trick my friends lmao

As far as I'm concerned, considering how many free games they have given me so far, I feel it's only fair that I buy games from their store to repay their kindness.

Sorry for bad english

My theory:

Epic Games is basically gathering more users and attracting more developers for the increasing number of users migrating to Epic Games. Epic Games is also gathering data and statistics (like user preferences) If you watch the rise and reign of Jeff Bezos it is similar to that.
