The Epic Games Store with its aggressive developer earnings program is drilling away at Steam's already-installed hegemony as the PC gaming platform of choice. A mere 12% royalty for the storefront means much more money goes back to the developers, and the more copies are sold of a given game, the bigger the profit will become. This is why some games have already even left Steam's shores to find a home on the Epic Games Store.
 
Ubisoft has also outed the system requirements for the PC version of The Division 2, which, for a minimum of 30 FPS at 1080p, will require either an AMD FX-6350 or Intel Core I5-2500K CPU, 8 GB of RAM, and 2 GB of video RAM on an AMD Radeon R9 270 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 670.
 
For High settings and 1440p resolution at 60 FPS, the recommended specs take quite a bump: an AMD Ryzen 7 1700/Intel Core I7-6700K CPU paired with 16 GB of RAM and 8GB of video memory on an AMD RX Vega 56 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070. If you're rocking a 144 Hz screen with that particular resolution, you'll likely need NVIDIA's top of the line RTX 2080 Ti or the upcoming AMD Radeon VII - we'll make sure to try and see whether that is true or not come the games' release.
 
Game companies need to maximize profit so if Steam is taking to much cash they will go elsewhere.

Specs: AMD 2920X Threadripper, Corsair MP510 M.2, 128GB Corsair RGB Vengeance Pro,  ASRock X399 Taichi, Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2070

    I am no fan of the EPIC game store front  but I am glad someone has finally begun giving Steam some competition ( come-uppance ) ... it is @  8 years too late but better late than never. 
     
     
    Hopefully better things to come for game developers / &  gamers.

    I'd prefer all online store fronts die a horrible death.

    Pretty soon we are going to need a games manager for storefronts. Something that front ends steam, origin, epic, bethesda etc.

    This is getting rediculous.
