Steam took off in 2006 when it was opened up to non-Valve games, a process accelerated with its Greenlight initiative in 2012 to encourage independent developers to publish their games on Steam.

MCV talked to Epic Games founder and CEO Tim Sweeney about the new store.

Epic's announcement was quite opportune and we could see a big exodus of indies over to the Epic store-or at the very least more titles coming to both Steam and the Epic Games Store.
