Tim Sweeney on Tencent accessing user data, Epic Store exclusives, older Epic games and more

In a series of tweets, Epic Games’ CEO Tim Sweeney commented on whether Tencent can have access to users’ data, future Epic Store exclusive games, when the store will open to indie developers, whether the company is planning to re-release some of its older titles and more.

As Sweeney noted, even though Tencent may have access to financial statements, it has no access to customer data.

Furthermore, Sweeney claimed that there wasn’t any Epic Games security breach (despite some reports that were surfaced earlier this year).

Sweeney also stated that Epic is focusing on bringing more exclusives to the store that implementing new features to it. While Sweeney claimed that the team is building lots of new features, it is going full speed ahead on games without wait. And, as we’ve said numerous times, this is something that frustrated a lot of gamers as the store currently lacks major features.

Regarding older Epic games, such as Unreal Tournament and Unreal, coming to the store, Sweeney said that the team is looking into it, though he could not confirm nor deny whether this will happen in the foreseeable future.

Last but not least, Sweeney said that the store will open to all small indie developers later in 2019.
