GhostTrick Member Oct 25, 2017 8,194 Jan 28, 2019 #1 Following the announcement that Metro Exodus would be pulled from Steam 2 weeks before release and not sold until a year later, it seems people skipped one another MAJOR aspect of that announcement: It seems like Metro Exodus will be removed from sale from ALL the other competing storefronts. Humble Store doesn't sell the game anymore: https://www.humblebundle.com/store/metro-exodus Despite being on preorder a few days ago: https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:U3L-4TNR25wJ:https://www.humblebundle.com/store/metro-exodus+&cd=1&hl=fr&ct=clnk&gl=fr But also from Razer Game Store (which was selling it for 48 dollars), Fanatical or GreenManGaming. And while we have yet to know if it'll come back at the same time as Steam or before... the situation today is the following: Before Epic's move, 5 stores were selling from prices ranging from 45 dollars/euros to 60 dollars/euros. After Epic's move, 1 store is selling it, for only one price of 50 dollars in USA (cheaper than Steam but more expensive than other places that used to sell it) or 60€ (same as Steam and more expensive as other places). We basically arrived in a situation where what people called competition led to a situation where they are the ONLY place selling a game at only one price. With such policy, this is an actual move that is hurting the market as a whole and set a bad precedent for what some would actually call a monopoly.
