Developers of the Epic Games app offered a response 

Epic quickly responded to the issue that was causing the performance of the computers to dip. The bug would render the idle app running in the background, which would ultimately raise the idle CPU temps to a concerning height.

In response, the studio came up with quick fix with the 11.0.2 version of the app that addressed the issue. The update for the app has gone live, and users may notice the drop in idle CPU temperatures.

Although it is not seen as a total fix Epic has promised that it will improve the performance.

In other news, the lucrative winter sale from Epic Games is still ongoing. It is offering massive discounts across 21 amazing AAA titles. On top of that, the store has also introduced a unique coupon voucher. This coupon will slash $13.52 off the already discounted games that you can claim more than once after each purchase. Epic has also offered 15 free games to all the users during winter, making it a wonderful Christmas gift from its end.
