    They are paying people to make their games exclusivly for their store, Not to be sold on any other online store like steam/origin/uplay/microsoft etc.

    Apparently they've now said it will return to steam on February 14th 2020.
    I want it on GOG.

    I tend to get all games i can on steam and the rest on either gog or Origin. That is enough for me.

    Personally, I support it. It's better for the devs, and it means the game is $10 cheaper.

    Welp, I'm not buying it then. I am pretty sure the exclusivity deal is due to Epic paying Deep Silver loads of money for the exclusivity.

    Plus Epic Store is a lot like early Steam, missing a lot of features and is quite region-restricted unlike Steam now.

    If the publisher wanted to pull this crap, they should have at least made is exclusive on GoG...

    @yfk12 it's better for the devs, yes, but what's in it for YOU, as the consumer? Also, the game being cheaper kinda defeat the point of the devs getting bigger cut, tbh.

    $10 is in it for me, as the consumer. And as for the shadiness of an exclusivity deal, it isn't even full exclusivity. Metro will eventually be out on other storefronts, Epic just gets a head start while it's still building up its platform.

    @yfk12 Except Epic Game Store is also region-locked in terms of currency. My country is not listed on the Epic Game Store so if I buy anything on that platform, I have to use US prices (if it even works). So me as a CONSUMER gets jack-shit from this deal along other consumers in my situation and the devs won't get money from consumers in my situation.

    Oh, wasn't aware of that. That's less good, I admit.
