Achievements were always on the table for the Epic Games Store and it looks like now the company is ready to roll them out. Shortly after launch, Epic Games revealed a big roadmap for their plans regarding the store, saying that this type of growth "takes time" and they wanted to get it right. It has evolved quite a bit since launch, including free games every month, and now it looks like the Achievements portion of their roadmap is ready to see fruition.
Epic Games took to Twitter to reveal the good news alongside a heads up that only "certain games" will have this feature at this time while they work on expanding the client. "Certain games on the Epic Games Store may begin to display achievements as you unlock them," reads their latest social media post. "This is an early version of the feature and you can expect to see changes and adjustments. We'll have more info to share on achievements in the future, so stay tuned!"

Unfortunately, they didn't actually mention which games would see this impact, though the "more info" soon will likely have more to offer. Hopefully, because this messaging is a little vague and not quite as clear as fans were hoping for.
That being said, it's nice to see Epic chipping away at their roadmap slowly but surely when considering how much this service does for devs, especially indies. With an unprecedented cut for developers in terms of profit, this client has been treasured by devs far and wide for the freedom that allows to focus on content and creating even more. Games don't appear out of thin air, they need funding, and that cut offers a lot of help in terms of seeing an immediate return to aid in future creative endeavors.
