Epic President complains piracy is killing PC gaming

Posted on Wednesday, May 19 2010 @ 11:36:34 CEST by


Epic Games president Mike Capps explains their money's on console gaming because of rampant piracy on the PC platform:
“If you walked into [Epic's Offices] six years ago,” said Capps, “Epic was a PC company. We did one PS2 launch title, and everything else was PC. And now, people are saying ‘Why do you hate the PC? You’re a console-only company.’”

“And guess what?” he says, “It’s because the money’s on console.”

“We still do PC, we still love the PC, but we already saw the impact of piracy: it killed a lot of great independent developers and completely changed our business model.” Capps discusses the rise of free-to-play microtransaction based games, like Farmville, the “biggest game of all right now.”
