I don't mind things going to the EGS other than the somewhat inconvenient nature of it. I just think it's sad that the game is going to have an extra level of negativity towards it because of this, now.

Epic store just made things personal with me. I will forever hate them from this day if it's EGS exclusive. They can straight up go fuck themselves if that's the case. Playing with my preferred choices

Tbh I don't blame them for taking the Epic money. Even if the game were looking good, it's going to get buried in November between Death Stranding, Star Wars, and Doom.

Waiting for confirmation of exclusivity, but at the very least I hope the Steam keys for backers are honoured.

I backed this game on Kickstarter for a "Physical Steam Disc" according to the fangamer survey. If I don't get a "Physical Steam Disc" and I get a "Physical Epic Disc" instead, I want my money back.

Either it is exclusive or it's just Epic bringing in shit tier intentionally confusing console marketing into the pc gaming space.

Bad news either way

I honestly feel for the PC backers. Epic continues to be shit, but the devs/pub are the biggest shits here, taking a deal many of those who supported them will be strongly against.

Personally I have no horse in this race, the game always looked like shit to me. So I feel no loss here.

Shenmue is such a niche game, It'll do well on ps4 hopefully EGS fortnight players give a shit and buy it.

We don't know if it's exclusive and it has a Steam page. It wouldn't surprise me if it turned out to be (and it would be annoying) but the thread seems premature
