What is interesting is that not only is there another storefront that is entering the market, but it is convincing developers into selling their games at the Epic Games Store and not at Steam altogether.

Developers, Pheonix Labs, have made an announcement on their official website that they will be opting to sell at the Epic Games Store. This is not the first time that developers have opted for the Epic Games Store for their 88/12 revenue split.
