Metro Exodus Developers Affirms PC Will “Always Be At The Heart Of Our Plans”
Deep Silver and Koch Media recently announced that Metro Exodus wouldn’t release on Steam, the developers favored the more flexible Epic Games Store deal and the game will release exclusively on PC through that store. This obviously annoyed Steams users, Steam even put more fuel in the fire by posting this statement on Metro Exodus Steam Page:
Notice: Sales of Metro Exodus have been discontinued on Steam due to a publisher decision to make the game exclusive to another PC store.
The developer and publisher have assured us that all prior sales of the game on Steam will be fulfilled on Steam, and Steam owners will be able to access the game and any future updates or DLC through Steam.
We think the decision to remove the game is unfair to Steam customers, especially after a long pre-sale period. We apologize to Steam customers that were expecting it to be available for sale through the February 15th release date, but we were only recently informed of the decision and given limited time to let everyone know.
Some Steam and Reddit users talked about boycott the Metro Exocus release, this led to ‘Scynet’ a 4A Games Developer to express his disappointment over those who want to boycott the game, he tells that Epic Games Store is just a launcher for gamers, and if that gamers don’t care about Metro Exodus then 4A Games might not care about releasing future games on PC.
4A Games representatives posted an official statement on the Metro Facebook Page read it below:
The recent decision to move Metro Exodus from Steam to the Epic Game Store was made by Koch Media / Deep Silver alone.
The recent comments made by a member of the 4A Games development team do not reflect Deep Silver’s or 4A Games’ view on the future of the franchise. They do reflect the hurt and disappointment of a passionate individual who has seen what was previously nothing but positive goodwill towards his work turn to controversy due to a business decision he had no control over. We respectfully ask that any and all valid feedback over this decision is directed at Koch Media / Deep Silver, and not the developers at 4A Games.
The future release strategy of the Metro series lies with Koch Media / Deep Silver. Our decision to partner with Epic Games was based on the goal of investing in the future of the series and our development partner at 4A Games. We have every intention of continuing this franchise, and a PC version will always be at the heart of our plans.
