We reported yesterday that Epic Store CEO Tim Sweeny spoke out on exclusive titles and dethroning Steam. One of the main topics of discussion was the fact that Borderlands 3 is going to be an Epic Store exclusive title and this made PC fans angry because they don’t like the idea of using another game library. Well, it looks like Borderlands 3 fans will not have any other options because it has been confirmed that Borderlands 3 will be available only on the Epic Store until 2020.
Borderlands 3 Epic Store Exclusivity
Borderlands 3 is one of the most highly anticipated games in 2019 and Epic Store decided to purchase exclusivity rights to it. This is a clever marketing move from Epic Store because Borderlands 3 has a large fan base and all of them who want to play the game on PC will need to download Epic Store.
PC Gamers are Angry
As previously mentioned, PC gamers are angry with the fact that more and more developers are singing deals with Epic Store and making their titles exclusive. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the Borderlands fan community lashed out at publisher 2K which signed the deal with Epic Store.
“The PC gaming community has been an important part of the success of the Borderlands series, and we are excited to be partnering with Epic, who recognize its worldwide popularity and share in our commitment to bring Borderlands 3 to this rapidly expanding audience,” said David Ismailer who is 2K’s President.
“Our mission, in addition to delivering the most engaging and captivating entertainment experiences, is to embrace new distribution platforms that will contribute to our effort to grow the audience for Borderlands 3,” added David Ismailer.
Nonetheless, Borderlands 3 is scheduled to launch on September 13 and that is when all PC players will be able to download it from the Epic Store. In addition, the game is also going to launch on Xbox One and PS4 on the same date.
