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.

Nor will they.

Only if you assume the only benefit is reduced prices. Which, for some reason, many people do think that's the only possible benefit. Probably because it's the easiest to see. Doesn't mean other benefits won't show up.

Yea, well. if Tim Sweeney hadn't boasted and made those comments about how Epic could deliver games cheaper to the users because of their modeling then it wouldn't be a problem.

But the guy is a flat out liar and doesn't give a shit about giving good pricing to the users.
