Epic Games has announced its plans to implement free cross-platform online services into Unreal Engine and Unity. Over time these services will be free for all developers to mix and match with other solutions, and will be open to all engines, all platforms, and all stores. Epic Games has successfully battle tested these tools in Fortnite which has reached 200 million players across 7 different platforms including PC, Mac, iOS, Android, PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch. Some of the upcoming features planned for cross-platform services in 2019 include voice comms, data storage, cloud-saved games, achievements, trophies, parties and matchmaking, PC/Mac overlay API, login, friends, presence, and entitlements. After the first steps are taken, more features such as user-generated content, enhanced social features, anti-cheat and more are planned. We connect developers and players across all platforms, and respect existing platform relationships and player accounts. For example, Fortnite runs on 7 platforms that are fully interoperable; the game requires no login on console, and supports multi-platform login via Facebook, Google, Xbox Live, PSN, and Nintendo accounts, in addition to Epic accounts; and supports Twitch account linking. Besides these existing account and service integrations, we're eager to work with partners on further efforts to connect accounts, gaming services, and cloud services for a more seamless experience. We operate our services primarily on Amazon Web Services data centers throughout the world to bring the high reliability and wide international reach required by the next generation of online and socially-connected games.
