Does the Epic Games Store count as PC releases for countries that aren't the US, given that it only has the one US storefront and only accepts USD?

You seem to be a bit misinformed. While that may have been true at one point*, as per their FAQ they support 21 currencies and even more countries https://www.epicgames.com/site/en-US/epic-games-store-faq. It isn't always the most favorable conversion rates but... by those standards we would probably be gutting a lot of Steam and console games too.

And I think they had the same problem as everyone else a while back where load balancing put people in alternate language stores?

*: Was it... ever? Fortnite predated EGS as we know it and I can't imagine Epic left money on the table with that
