During an interview with Fast Company, Tim Sweney, director of Epic Games, revealed the plan that Epic Games has for Fortnite. According to Sweeney, the company’s goal is to launch an Unreal editor in Fortnite by the end of the year, which would make it a platform for creators to unleash their talent and monetize it. Although the director did not give details, he did clarify that he wants to make a transition to a Roblox-type platform, a game that has made millions of dollars in the industry.
According to Sweeney, the Unreal editor in Fortnite will start an entire marketplace ecosystem where creators will have the ability to sell all of their works.
It should be noted that the director of Epic Games stressed that his company will give quality creations an opportunity on this new platform. “Our goal is to make it a world-class point of sale to reach consumers, just like the mobile app stores, consoles and Steam as ways to reach users,” he stressed.
