I would almost guarantee that's the case. Part of the reason one person was rejected by Epic was that they didn't bring over a significant community from Steam.World of Goo got confirmed today, so that just makes me wonder if those devs have something in the works that EGS picked up.
pretty much, yeahAdd J Blow's next game to the list. He must've sacrificed his second child to the Epic gods for a spot.
That's how it works right? If your new thing isn't ready to be shown, you're given an early spot if you send your old game to the free giveaway zone.
Phil Fish will uncancel Fez 2 and release it on EGS only.Epic is still courting the 2009-2012 indie success stories. The indie devs who need the most help /s.
I won't be surprised when the next Tomorrow Corp game is an EGS exclusive.
Im under nda so honestly can't say much but few months ago they asked titan quest community to apply for a test they are doing. Im one of few who got accepted. Im allowed to say that much but nothing elseSuch as? D:
And how do you know this?
Ok, without giving too much to potentially jeopardise yourself of course
They don't, they just want both: Our and Epics money. Nobody knows if they would have made more money from costumers by not going third party exclusive. Nobody knows how much money Epic is paying them and at what point everything breaks even or swings to one side or the other. Especially as long term sells are important and their game starts hitting other stores after a year.Why do devs hate the customer's money all of a sudden? Even squeenix was the one to talk about how PC is about long-term sales.
NOOOOO!Griftlands (Klei) looks to be one of the exclusives as well
madjoki said it suddenly went pretty damn quiet (package activity) after being very busy for a good while
which might mean they stopped integrating and testing steamworks stuff (so they don't need to update the packages any more)
I wasn't being 100% serious, but I feel those defending it are the same people who will never buy anything from it. So I know they're at least getting Epic's money, but how much are they really getting from customers?They don't, they just want both: Our and Epics money. Nobody knows if they would have made more money from costumers by not going third party exclusive. Nobody knows how much money Epic is paying them and at what point everything breaks even or swings to one side or the other.

Most people, probably, really don't care and the EGS is just another free client to them. A small hurdle to overcome to be able to play a game they like.
Most journalists are as uninformed and naive as it gets and only echo the "it's just a free client" rhetoric, they even sometimes play dump when directly confronted or play the "it's just a toxic, loud minority" card.
Influencers are also rather shy about the topic, because nobody want to loose that early access to codes and promotions.
It's all f* up.
The same ones who Valve thanked this year for helping them test out their new servers with Don't Start Together? Well... that's awkward.NOOOOO!
