The Twitch chief, Emmett Shear, was reluctant to assign his employees to projects for the game studios, two people who worked with him say. One proposal, pushed by Frazzini in 2017, asked Twitch to help build a digital game store, the former employees say. The idea would allow Amazon to avoid paying a 30% sales commission to Steam, the most popular storefront for PC games. Twitch employees weren’t thrilled because Amazon didn’t have any big games with which to attract shoppers. Frazzini’s employees assigned to collaborate on the project protested because bypassing Steam would shrink their market, four former employees say. Withholding a game from Steam, they argued, is the equivalent of refusing to sell a book on Amazon. When the project was due for more staffing resources, Shear resisted, and it was left to languish inside Amazon Game Studios.
I could be wrong but from what I remember 3rd parties on EGS made less than $300 million USD, while fall guys alone made $100 million on Steam..... And that was for less than half a year. And even at it's very lowest that game made $70 million USD on steam alone.Tim Sweeney and Yves Guillemot:
So they're suing Valve because Valve doesn't want to be undercut on the keys they provide for free and don't directly make money off of? Lol.

Bezos to simply buy Valve next. with the spare change in his car's cupholder.
Valve only controls Steam key pricing. Games themselves are priced by publishers every where else.
