Epic Games’ Epic Games Store has gained a following through a fair mixture of different techniques, whether it be through its lessened development fees or through its weekly free games. The Store is actually in the middle of a month long promotional free game session, where everyday, a new free game is put up on the site for the rest of the year.

Despite not announcing what each day’s free game will be until after it’s already up, a recent Twitter post may help give us a clue as to what might be laying ahead. The list was shared by Twitter user @jovanmunja, who has said that the list was messaged to them out of nowhere, and they aren’t incredibly sure whether it may be correct or not.

If we assume that the list is true, which it has been so far, over the next few days in 2020, this is Epic Games’ release schedule:

  • Cities: Skylines | December 17th (confirmed true, 1 day before Tweet)
 
  • Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty | December 18th (confirmed, day of Tweet)
 
  • The Long Dark | December 19th (confirmed, day after Tweet)
 
  • Defense Grid: The Awakening | December 20th (confirmed, 2 days after Tweet)
 
  • Alien: Isolation | December 21st
 
  • Metro 2033 Redux | December 22nd
 
  • Tropico 5 | December 23rd
 
  • Inside | December 24th
 
  • Darkest Dungeon | December 25th
 
  • My Time in Portia | December 26th
 
  • Night in the Woods | December 27th
 
  • Stranded Deep | December 28th
 
  • Solitairica | December 29th
 
  • Torchlight II | December 30th
 
  • Jurassic World: Evolution | December 31st

So far, all of these have been correct, even though the first two were released before the Tweet went up. The day after the Tweet went up, December 19th, The Long Dark went on the store, which was on the list, and then two days after, the 20th, today, Defense Grid appeared on the store, also on the list.

Obviously, the rest of this should be taken with a grain of salt, but so far it’s been really accurate, even with only two days having taken place after the Tweet was made.

The only possible thing that might invalidate this, is that many of the games aren’t available on the Epic Games Store after all, although many other free games in the past were brought to the store for the first time as a free game. That way, there’s already a precedent for this to happen.

Overall, you can still follow this through the Tweet link in the picture of the Tweet, or through Statural.com, since we’ll likely follow up on this in a few days.
