    Yeah this won't go well. I'm getting a real Fallout 76 "not going to do anything about it" vibe from that email.

    Holy shit the Kickstarter update has 21 pages of comments by backers angry at this move.

    This is such a counter-PR move, everyone that backed will remember because they were directly affected. I don't know what the company's thinking.

    Btw Deep Silver, that's owned by THQ Nordic right? Is THQ making the decisions directly, or are Deep Silver just independantly being morons? Because THQ just bought Pirahna Bytes FFS...

    THQ owns Deep Silver but they're an independent branch. They stepped away from Deep Silver's Epic cock wobbling when the Metro fiasco hit.

    I could see Vavra accepting money from Epic to finance KCD2 bigger ambitions. But at the same time he seems like a bro so I hope he doesn't.

    Maybe Deep Silver will eventaully realize it's shooting itself in the foot and desist from Epic exclusives?

    God damn, for what it's worth it seems like some publishers who dabbled in Epic's deal saw the damage it has done to their games so they stop doing that. After Observation, Devolver no longer announces any other exclusive, Annapurna's 12 Minutes is on Steam (probably) after Outer Wilds released with no fanfare, Team17 has Hell let Loose and the upcoming Blasphemous on Steam after having Genesis Alpha One on Epic. But meanwhile, Deep Silver double down on this and somehow they made an even scummier move than the whole Exodus shenanigan. I'm fucking impressed actually, they just give zero shit.

    I assume Epic is throwing them stupid amounts of money for it. That or whoever is in charge is a legitimate retard.

    From what I hear, Microsoft took back Outer Worlds from the Epic Game Store, so that won't be an exclusive release there...

    EDIT: The info I have isn't 100% certified (at this point), but everything suggests to Outer Worlds on the PC being released as part of M$'s XBox Game Pass instead of the EGS.

    Looks to be a "wait and see" news item for now.

    Does one need to sign up for any Microsoft service to play those games on Steam?

    You sure is not just epic not paying for those other releases? For a small studio, epic guarnteed sales are just a very very good deal. And you can also re-release 1 year later on steam, preferably with a big update. If game is any good it would make bank on steam release too.

    Look at Shenmue 3 and then look at Yakuza Kiwami 2 and explain to me how the latter can be a game that came out 2 years earlier.

    Klei Entertainment is following my advice. If you have to do Epic exclusivity, give people free Steam keys later. So simple, so obvious: https://steamcommunity.com/games/601840/announcements/detail/1610514097397241772

    While Deep Silver indulged in anti-consumer practices and corporate greed, they studied the blade.
