The Epic Games Store gave away 89 free titles last year (up from 103 in 2020), with a combined value of $2,120.
According to Epic, users claimed more than 765 million free games in 2021. 76 free games broke their peak concurrent user records on PC, averaging 13 times their all-time highs, it claimed in January.
The Epic Game Store’s user base hit 194 million in 2021, up from 160 million a year earlier, the company said.
CD Projekt announced a 15-year strategic partnership with Epic Games earlier this week, alongside the announcement that its upcoming Witcher game will begin “a new saga” for the franchise.
The open-world title is built with Epic Games’ Unreal Engine, rather than its proprietary RED engine, which powered previous Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077 games.
“We are pleased to announce that the next installment in The Witcher video game series is currently in development, kicking off a new saga for the franchise,” he said.
“It’s an exciting time as we transition from REDengine to Unreal Engine 5, entering into a multi-year strategic partnership with Epic Games. It covers not only licensing, but technical development of Unreal Engine 5, as well as future releases. Unreal Engine potentials, if any.
“We will be working closely with the developers at Epic Games, with the main goal being to help adapt the engine to open-world experiences.”
