Especially when Gearbox pulled the whole, "let's reveal the game on March 28th, but not announce the timed exclusivity until April 3rd" shit.These sorts of arguments in favor of EGS from developers who’ve entered exclusivity deals always come across as dishonest when they don’t seem willing (or contractually allowed?) to acknowledge that the deal even exists. Like, Take Two didn’t decide to publish Borderlands 3 on EGS exclusively because competition is good. They did it because they expect to make more money (sales plus whatever Epic is paying) than they would’ve made on Steam in that time frame. We can’t have the whole conversation, so we’re left with guys like Randy pretending to be freedom fighters tearing down a monopoly that doesn’t actually exist.
Hmm... I wonder which announcement is which?
