Unreal Dev Grants?

Recommended Posts

Heyo, a while back Epic Games launched the Unreal Dev Grants program to distribute some funding to developers who submit their work through the program. If I recall during the Battlefield Podcast interview, an update regarding the grants was mentioned; its been while since then. any news on the grant distribution? C:

$210,000 out of $5 million has been awarded since the start of the program. If the developers manage to secure a grant its probably not going to be in the six figures.

Hmm, the grants given so far though seem to be towards small dev teams with what looks like small-ish projects. I feel like with the size of Squad, its dev team, the Greenlight stats, and media coverage (comparatively), there is a good chance that OWI gets a relatively larger grant.

Awards range from $5,000 to $50,000, with no strings attached. 

 

my point being the developers wont get a six figure grant but they could max out at $50,000.. i don't think this matters to Epic as all of the grants were given to unknown smaller teams with little to no media coverage.
