The number of active users per month has also increased significantly. The number was 32 million in December 2019, and 56 million in December 2020.
The increase in users has also meant greater number of purchases and playtime. PC users spent more than $ 700 million in the Epic Games Store in 2020. $ 265 million of this went to third-party games. Meanwhile, users played over 5.70 billion hours of Epic Games Store games in 2020, compared to 3.35 billion in 2019.

In 2020, Epic introduced significant infrastructure changes in its store that were not obvious to computer customers, as well as features such as wishlists, mod support for certain games, self-service refunds and offline logins. In 2021, Epic says it prioritizes more community-focused features such as reworked social items, wishlist improvements, achievements, player profiles, and maybe even a shopping cart.
