Discord, the popular community for gamers has announced that, from 2019, it will allow the developers to have 90% revenue to all self-publish games. This new incentive program was announced on their official blog by considering the game developers effort.
On their blog post, they mentioned the main reason why developers started creating their own stores and launch their games. They did some research on it, talked to lots of developers and got valuable opinions. That made them choose the wise decision about the 90/10 revenue split of all the games sold on the Discord game store.
We think developers should be able to focus on building great games and communities.
In 2019, the Discord store will allow all developers to self-publish games with a 90/10 revenue split so they can.
