Though In Some Cases Exclusive Just Means It Isn’t On Steam
If you are still miffed about the Epic Game Store being the one and only source for certain games you are not going to like their recent announcement. In an interview they not only confirmed that they will continue with their habit of ensuring that they are the sole source of many games at launch, suggesting that there will be more exclusive releases in the coming two years than the sum of the games currently available on the store right now.
Games such as Darkest Dungeon 2, Kena: Bridge Of Spirits and Chivalry 2 will truly be exclusive to Epic for a while after launch; bad news for fans that have avoided adding yet another online portal account so far. Others releases such as Far Cry 6, Rainbow Six Quarantine and other Ubisoft games will not truly be exclusive, as they will also be available on UPlay but not on Steam for the foreseeable future.
On the plus side they will continue to give away free games at the same pace that they have been currently, so signing up to the portal does have some benefits.
"We have more exclusives coming in the next two years than we have published to date," an Epic spokesperson told PC Gamer. They didn't get much more specific than that, but still, that's a helluva lot of games.
