so i just downloaded ue4 and i see this pay 5% royalty fee when the game released how much does the royalty fee cost exactly?
You can earn $3,000 per game per quarter, and then you pay 5% of any money you earn above that.
so we must pay 5% of our profits in that quarter?
Not IN that quarter. You don’t know what your revenue (revenue, not profit!) is yet! I’m not sure what the deadline is for paying, but it won’t be midnight, the last day of the quarter.
Just put 5% aside, and you’ll be fine.
From the FAQ:
You also need to fill out a form notifying us when you release your game: Release and Royalty Tracking Guidelines - Unreal Engine
So if I earn $2900 through my game A, and earn $500 in game B, do I have to pay royalties? Or it’s completely per app/game?
