The Epic Games Store now has over 160 million users on PC after an "incredible year of growth," according to Epic Games.
Outlining the store's performance during 2020 in a blog post, Epic revealed the digital marketplace attracted 31.3 million daily active players last year -- an increase of 192 percent compared with 2019 -- and hit a peak of 13 million concurrent players.
It highlighted December as a particularly successful month, with the Epic Games Store attracting 56 million users during the final weeks of 2020 -- up from 32 million in 2019. According to Epic, that surge in growth also led to an increase in sales and playtime.
"PC customers on the Epic Games Store spent over $700 million [in 2020], of which third party games represented 37 percent at $265 million," explained the company. For context, the store generated over $680 million in revenue during 2019.
"Last year, the Epic Games Store community played 70 percent more hours with a total playtime of 5.70 billion hours in 2020 compared to 3.35 billion hours in 2019," it continued.
Epic pledged to keep improving the marketplace -- which made headlines when it launched in 2018 by offering developers a 88 percent revenue share -- by adding new features including wishlist improvements, player profiles, and achievements.
