SourceDSOgaming said:This 4A Games developer with the nickname “scynet” admitted that it was a sudden decision to announce the timed-exclusive deal with Epic Games only one month prior to the game’s release and that it could cause some inconvenience to players. Scynet also claimed that those that decide to pirate the game would have done so, regardless of this timed-exclusive deal, and those are not the players that the developers target.
However, the developer went one step further and stated that if all PC gamers boycott Metro Exodus then the next Metro game (if there is one mind you) will not come out on the PC. Now I’m pretty sure that the developer was exaggerating here but it begs the question; how many PC sales can guarantee the continuation of the Metro franchise on the PC?
You have it, PC gamers.
Sorry, I'm currently out of town, but I can confirm that this forum is legit, and this is indeed one of 4A devs. This site is the place where a lot ex-S.T.A.L.K.E.R. devs were usually hanging around and discuss stories about stalker development, they are also leaked a lot of pre-release builds of Shadow o Chernobyl. But again, this is not an official position of 4A games, it's just a personal opinion of one of the developers.
