Recently, Microsoft promised a reduction in fees for developers who sold games from their stores. Microsoft was previously taking 30 per cent of each sale, but the cut will see it match the Epic Games Store at 12 per cent in an effort to entice developers to list games on their platform and stores. This change will come into effect on August 1.
Microsoft later clarified that this change will only happen on its PC store, and the console store will continue to maintain its 30 per cent cut.
