Metro Exodus PC Boycott Threat Recanted

A post on Facebook for Metro Exodus walks back from the recent comment from a 4A Games developer suggesting the next installment in the Metro series might skip the PC platform if backlash to the game's Epic Games Store exclusivity caused a significant PC boycott. The new statement says this threat does not represent the actual stance of the game's publisher or developer:
The recent decision to move Metro Exodus from Steam to the Epic Game Store was made by Koch Media / Deep Silver alone.

The recent comments made by a member of the 4A Games development team do not reflect Deep Silverís or 4A Gamesí view on the future of the franchise. They do reflect the hurt and disappointment of a passionate individual who has seen what was previously nothing but positive goodwill towards his work turn to controversy due to a business decision he had no control over. We respectfully ask that any and all valid feedback over this decision is directed at Koch Media / Deep Silver, and not the developers at 4A Games.

The future release strategy of the Metro series lies with Koch Media / Deep Silver. Our decision to partner with Epic Games was based on the goal of investing in the future of the series and our development partner at 4A Games. We have every intention of continuing this franchise, and a PC version will always be at the heart of our plans.

I can't be bothered to give a shit about this, and I'm just surprised at how angry this decision has made people.
I think a big part of it is that gamers are so tribalistic and there are a lot of Steam fanboys out there. Aligning yourself with a platform that just wants to make money off you is gross but gamers have a long history of that.
