Where analyst Daniel Ahmad points to
a financial report
from Digital Bros
(parent company of Control
publisher 505 Games
) that lists a 9.49 million Euro payment made by Epic Games
. The report, which is in Italian, reportedly states that the money is for digital exclusivity.
With 55% of the payment going to publisher 505 Games.
Naturally, this is not controversial in and of itself but sheds some light on the situation relating to Epic Games Store exclusive releases on PC. With the over $10 million in USD paid for Control it's safe to assume that the amount paid to 2K for Borderlands 3 would probably me markedly higher.
