Are Unreal Dev Grants Given in Waves?

So, Epic released a list of recent dev grant winners in an article. The wording implies that they give out multiple grants at a time and only in these “waves.” Is this the truth?

We do award grants in bunches as you’ve pointed out but have often awarded projects and developers outside of one of these announces. In some cases, a project is still unannounced and we cannot share the information at that time.

Hope that helps!
