Epic Games Store promises even more exclusives over the next couple of years
Those responsible for the Epic Game Store, who have made their aggressive (and sometimes criticized) exclusivity policy one of their trademarks, have no intention of slowing down over the next couple of years. Far from it, they aim to increase the dose

During an interview granted to the editorial staff of PC Gamer, eager to find out information on the future plans of the Store, a spokesperson reported that in the next two years the managers in the store digital are planning more exclusives than have been published to date. It hasn't revealed a precise number, but we can assume it's pretty big, considering that in the last two years, 115 exclusives, mostly temporal, have been published in the last two years (excluding titles published directly by Epic such as Fortnite and Unreal Tournament ). In this count there are 65 games currently available for purchase on the Epic Games Store but not on Steam, and 50 launched as exclusives but which can now already be bought elsewhere (such as Metro Exodus, Borderlands 3, Control, The Outer Worlds and Hades). br>
At the moment 21 Epic Games Store exclusives have already been announced for the future, including Chivalry 2 (a full year), Kena: Bridge of Spirits (temporal), Darkest Dungeon 2 (until the end of Early Access), Oddworld: Soulstorm and The Wolf Among Us 2. In this issue PC Gamer also included Ubisoft games such as Far Cry 6, Rainbow Six Quarantine, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and The Settlers, which will be released on day-one as well as on the Epic Store, also on Ubisoft Connect, excluding Steam: in this we are therefore talking about a semi-exclusivity, as it is valid only towards the Valve store, the most used on PC.

Judging by the spokesperson's words, then, this isn't just a small part of what we can expect over the next two years, during which more than 115 Epic Games Store exclusives are expected.

By the way, we take this opportunity to remind you that right now Metro Last Light Redux and For the King are free on the Epic Games Store.
