Epic Games Offered Sony $200M For Exclusive Titles

A recently leaked court document from the Apple-Epic Games lawsuit showed Epic Games offered Sony $200 million for first-part Playstation exclusive titles. The deal is reportedly for four to six games.

“We don’t know what kind of deal Epic and Sony may have arrived at, as the document in question was made before any handshake,” writes Tyler Wilde of PC Gamer. It says that Epic offered Sony ‘$200M MG+ for 4-6 titles’ and was awaiting Sony’s response. ‘MG’ surely stands for ‘minimum guarantee,’ which is how Epic refers to these exclusivity deals: It’s the minimum revenue Epic guarantees a game publisher will make with an Epic Games Store exclusive, whether or not their game actually sells enough to cover it.”

It is unclear if Sony offered $200 million for each game or as a lump sum for all the titles at once. Only two Sony titles have been released exclusively on the Epic Games Store so far: ReadySet Heroes and Predator: Hunting Grounds.
