The new Fortnite Season 7 teaser has been revealed by Epic Games.
Details are a bit murky: Epic Games plans to launch with a set of "hand-curated" games for PC and Mac and open the store to a wider assortment of games and other platforms such as Android throughout 2019.
This is a great interview for developers interested in learning a bit more about how the Epic Games Store will operate, and if it's a good place to publish their work.

Epic's Nick Chester would later tell fans that the big Game Awards announcement wasn't linked to Season 7.
That does make one wonder what does quality mean to Epic Games in this case, especially when Steam is overrun with many games of dubious quality, and stores like GOG get complaints about not letting good games onto the storefronts at times. Games created on all engines are welcome in the store. December 6 is the Fortnite season 7 release date, but clearly there's much more in store later that day.
