Remedy, Quantic Dream, and other devs sign on for Epic Games Store exclusives

Remedy, Quantic Dream, and other devs sign on for Epic Games Store exclusives

March 20, 2019 | By Alex Wawro

In the midst of Epic's 'State of Unreal' briefing at GDC today the company confirmed plans to bring a bunch of old and upcoming games to its Epic Games Store, including exclusives from devs like Remedy, Quantic Dream, and more.

This is a big deal because Epic seems to be ramping up its efforts to compete with Steam and other storefronts by wooing developers to the Epic Games Store. 

Notable developers who have committed to launching their upcoming PC games as Epic Games Store exclusives (at least initially) include Remedy Entertainment (Control), Brace Yourself Games (Industries of Titan), and Heart Machine (Solar Ash). 

Ubisoft and Quantic Dream have also agreed to bring a number of their already-released games to the Epic Store, which is a big deal since this will be the first time that Quantic Dream's last three games (Beyond: Two SoulsHeavy Rain, and Detroit: Become Human) will be officially playable on PC.

In addition to the games already mentioned, the following titles are now slated to release exclusively on the Epic Games Store:

  • Afterparty (Night School Studios)
  • The Cycle (Yager)
  • Dauntless (Phoenix Labs)
  • Journey to the Savage Planet (Typhoon Studios and 505 Games)
  • Kine (Chump Squad)
  • Phoenix Point (Snapshot Games, already confirmed to be EGS-exclusive for a year)
  • The Sinking City (Frogwares and Bigben)
  • Spellbreak (Proletariat Inc)

Update: An earlier version of this story mistakenly stated that Obsidian's The Outer Worlds would be launching exclusively on the Epic Games Store, when in fact it will have a simultaneous PC release on both the Epic Games Store and the Windows 10 store.
