Metro Exodus an Epic Store Exclusive - What This Means for Steam Preorders

An announcement from Deep Silver on Steam reveals that Metro Exodus will be a timed exclusive for the Epic Games Store until February 14, 2020, one year after the planned February 15, 2019 release of 4A Games' first-person shooter sequel. The wrinkle with this plan is that Metro Exodus remains available for pre-purchase on Steam for the moment, and has already been preordered there by a number of customers. Preorders will end at some point today, but word is everyone that they will receive their game as expected. This is not preventing Valve from complaining about this, as they say: "We think the decision to remove the game is unfair to Steam customers, especially after a long pre-sale period. We apologize to Steam customers that were expecting it to be available for sale through the February 15th release date, but we were only recently informed of the decision and given limited time to let everyone know." Here's Deep Silver's take on the topic:
Epic Games and Deep Silver today announced a partnership that will see the digitally-distributed PC version of the highly anticipated Metro Exodus release on February 15th 2019 solely through the Epic Games store.

The ability to purchase / pre-order from Steam will soon be removed

However, any customer with an outstanding pre-order for Metro Exodus on PC through Steam will receive their game as expected.

Gaben should just threaten to delist all of Deep Silvers games on Steam.
Great approach if you want to drive all other developers to Epic or alternatives. No developer wants to be held hostage by Gaben.
