Epic may have fallen out with Apple but Microsoft’s making it welcome in the new Windows 11 Store

There are big changes on the way for the Microsoft Store with Windows 11 (and later through updates to Windows 10), including policy changes that could make the marketplace a little more useful for gamers. Microsoft has announced it will soon allow third-party storefronts to be downloaded direct through the built-in store, starting with the Epic Games Store and Amazon.

“…today we’re announcing another significant update to our Microsoft Store on Windows policies, which will allow third-party storefront apps to be discoverable in the Microsoft Store on Windows,” Microsoft says in a blog post. Just like any other app, third-party storefront apps will have a product detail page that can be found via search or by browsing – so that users can easily find and install it with the same confidence as any other app in the Microsoft Store on Windows.”
