Last month at the PC Gaming Show at E3, Sniper Elite developer Rebellion announced the latest game in its Nazi Zombie Army series of Left 4 Dead-style co-op zombie shooters - Zombie Army 4: Dead War. It was a generally welcomed announcement, as the series has a lot of fans, but there was one part of the news that upset those fans - it would be exclusive to the Epic Games Store.
Rebellion founders Jason and Chris Kingsley spoke at Develop: Brighton this week, and explained their stance towards the Epic store, exclusives, and why the studio decided to go with this decision. The brothers were surprisingly frank, and admitted that it was primarily a "pure business case" and that Epic are "paying through the nose" for exclusives.
"Generally I think I would prefer not to do exclusives," explained Jason Kingsley, "but I understand Epic's position with it, and quite frankly they are paying through the nose to build their store. All credit to them, it's fantastic, and we'll take some of their money, thank you very much."
