âWeâve had a lot of discussions about this since GDC,â Sweeney said in one tweet in reply to a question about exclusivity and games already being sold on Steam.
âEpic is open to continuing to sign funding/exclusivity deals with willing developers and publishers regardless of their previous plans or announcements around Steam.â.
But they said they said they wereÂ caught off guard by how bad it got.
Sweeney on Monday said that those comments at the talk âprompted further discussions at Epic.
In terms of Epic Games Store exclusives, Allison said at GDC he doesnât think the company plans to do that âforever.â.
But at some point, the industry will move down and match us (in terms of Epicâs 12% cut of sales.)
Weâve reached out to Epic Games for some clarity on his statements. »
