Steam will have a major competitor created by the well-known Epic Games, creator of the Fortnite game. Needless to say, Fortnite is the most popular game in the world. Battle Royal became famous after combining PUBG's ideology with Minecraft's. A basic explanation that serves to elucidate anyone who has never heard of this title.
However, Epic Games has more cards up its sleeve than just games. According to the latest information, Epic Games will create an online portal for PC and Mac games.

Thus, this portal comes to compete directly with the well-known Steam, EA Origin or even Battle.net. However, Epic Games believes it will be able to beat Steam and competitors' favoritism by offering developers more advantages.

That is to say, Epic Games will charge developers only 12% instead of the 30% that Steam or large companies previously charge. This way, Epic Games believes it will be able to attract more developers and titles to its store.
Fortnite is one of the most played games right now.
In addition, it was also noted that Epic is preparing campaigns for creators on Twitch and YouTube for streamers earn something when a game is installed through your influence.
This move from Epic Games is making the market more apprehensive for change. Glad to see more competition in the industry. Steam has long dominated, and few online stores can beat it.
Since Epic will decide to charge developers less for games, it is also possible for less greedy developers to lower the value of their games.
