Using UE4 For Personal Use Without Paying Royalty

I have been wondering if i use ue4 for my personal use without releasing whatever i create to the general public do i still have to pay epic games the 5% royalty fee? I read through the eula and tos and i didn’t see anything about that.

Hi. You only pay for releasing products that you make cash on. Basically, sell = pay 5%.

Take care…


You just have to pay 5% of what you earn, so if you don’t release it or release it for 100% free (without micro transaction) you don’t have to pay …

Basically, you pay for the money you earn , 5% of 0$ = 0$

Thanks all that helps a lot.
