EA will waive Origin fees for crowd-funded indie titles
EA has announced that indie titles that are crowd-funded through sites like Kickstarter will be able to publish their games on Origin for free.
In order to encourage more indie studios to use Origin as a platform EA has offered to allow crowd-funded titles to be published on Origin for 90 days without EA taking a cut of the sales.
Senior VP of Origin, David DeMartini explained their decision saying, "The public support for crowd-funding creative game ideas coming from small developers today is nothing short of phenomenal. It's also incredibly healthy for the gaming industry."
He continued, "Gamers around the world deserve a chance to play every great new game, and by waiving distribution fees on Origin we can help make that a reality for successfully crowd-funded developers."
