According to Epic, users used over 749 million free tracks last year. According to documents released as part of the Epic-Apple lawsuit, Epic Games spent about $12 million to secure titles for his recurring free game giveaway over nine months. This shows that Epic distributed 38 games in his first nine months on the store, each paying a different “buyback price” to developers.
