Ghost Recon Breakpoint an Epic Games Store Exclusive

The Epic Games Store now offers preorders of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Ubisoft's just-announced military shooter sequel. This reveals an increasing familiar scenario where the game will be exclusive to Epic's store and Uplay. PCGamesN has a confirmation of this from Ubisoft, noting it isn't a huge surprise following how Ubisoft stopped selling Anno 1800 and The Division 2 on Steam to make both games EGS exclusives. The standard edition of Breakpoint is listed at $59.99 USD, so consumers are yet to see any trickle down benefit from the discounted royalty structure that's behind such exclusives.

I know choosing Epic as a outlet was a clever trick to get people to buy from U-play direct, but they really should stay clear of Epic. It does noting but harm to a reputation they have been trying to build up over the years.
Touch Epic and forever smell of s***.

well if they sold it on the Uplay you would have a point...

It's all over the front page of store.ubi.com... This game is not EGS exclusive, it's just paid Steam exclusion.

Which is the ultimate goal of EGS exclusivity, to limit the availability of titles sold via the Steam store. Thereby reducing the likelihood that a studio will choose to use Steamworks,in order to get free money from Epic. That way, Epic doesn't ever have to get their storefront, or any features on par with Steam, they just have to try and wait them out.
Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishfull thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms.
