Epic Games is the team behind the popular free-to-play Fornite and has had a lot of success with it over the years. The company is expanding its publishing business and today, announced new projects with the developers of The Last Guardian, Control, and Inside. More information about these projects should be revealed soon.
The company said the following in a press release. It seems like they're quite fair given the risk Epic Games is taking by fully funding some projects.
Hector Sanchez, Head of Epic Games Publishing said the following, reaffirming that the developer keeps the rights to the games they develop.
While many see the Epic Games Store as not as advanced at Steam, these new initiatives are game-changers for the industry. Usually, publishers keep the rights to games. Hopefully, this is going to change going forward because a major company like Epic Games isn't going to do so.

Sounds very good from Epic. What it will do though is splinter the PC gaming community. As I'm sure they now won't be on Steam. As I understand though they will be on Switch, Xbox and PS. Puts Valve in a tricky situation.
