With the debut of the Epic Games Store back in December of past year, Epic Games made a direct line for grabbing major exclusives to debut on their digital store front, such as the anticipated Metro Exodus most recently.

"Our goal is not to build another walled garden", Epic Games Store Head Steve Allison said on stage.

Epic launched the Store in December 2018, offering developers an 88 percent cut of earnings rather than the 70 percent Steam offers. It indicates that within the next 6 months we should see cloud saves, wish lists, users reviews, an overlay and more. The game was up for pre-orders on Steam for a while before it made the switch to Epic Games Store. Now Epic Games Store stats shared during a GDC 2019 keynote reportedly claimed that sales for Metro: Exodus were two-and-a-half times that of its predecessor Metro: Last Light for the same duration since launch.

Now playing: Watch this: Google Stadia is a play-anywhere streaming game platform.

Let's also not forget that there was a lot of controversy surrounding the Epic Store release of Metro Exodus. It's important to remember that outside of indie studios, publishers decide these moves-505 Games decided for Remedy, and Private Division (Take-Two) decided for Obsidian.

Epic Games Store titles are branching out. In addition, games from the company's portfolio should become part of the regular, free offers in the store. The PC gaming userbase near unanimously disagrees with Epic's exclusivity buy ups.
