Core Heads To Epic Games Store, Announces $100m Round Of Investment
Creative sandbox game Core will be heading to the Epic Games Store on April 15, developer Manticore Games announced today. Manticore boasts of "roughly half a million projects started" on its game platform, though lists only 20,000 as fully completed games -- still an impressive total. It claims that Core is "the most Creator-friendly economy of any UGC-platform," offering a 50% revenue share, and "believes that the future of games is in open user-generated platforms."
Creators can make money in Core by producing games that are played by others, but the big money is going to the developer itself. Manticore Games also announced $100 million in Series C financing, with one of the investors being Epic Games itself -- which no doubt played some part in its arrival on that platform. Manticore co-founder and CEO Frederic Descamps said about the new round of funding:
"We are thrilled to have more resources to invest in our Creators, who we see as the engine of our growth, to ultimately build the games Multiverse and the best playground for players. Our Early Access launch on Epic Games Store next month is just the beginning."
