@info_68117/why-i-turned-down-exclusivity-deal-from-the-epic-store-developer-of-darq-7ee834ed0ac7" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"> Definitely do take this with a grain of salt, but it's again Epic doing one thing while saying the other.

So according to the dev here, Epic's talking their added choices and finally a competition in the Store market on PC, while not wanting to sell smaller indie titles unless they sign the exclusivity contracts.

You have a choice which is either only Epic, or everything else without Epic. The way I see it, they can't necessarily bully over all the bigger devs, but when it comes to indies and upcoming devs, they tell them to either accept ...

... the exclusivity contract or f*ck themselves away from their store. In essence, we give gamers a choice to buy wherever they want from, but not really.

We at Epic are here to make sure the monopoly on digital PC game stores is not held by only one company and we're doing so by providing another place you can buy your games so that you have a choice and that there's a fair competition on the market. In order to undermine that monopoly and provide you with those choices we're trying to make sure that every game sold on our store is exclusive to it! Because to us choices matter, and you most of all!
