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.

Are you possibly implying that increased revenue could lead to better/more games for consumers to enjoy, or even better work conditions?

Nah, everyone knows the 18% goes straight to the CEO's next yacht.

That's sarcasm, but tbh most people believe it works like that for every company on the planet.

No, of course not. It goes straight to his yacht AND the yachts of the many shareholders.

That's sarcasm, but tbh most people believe that profits will go straight to raised wages of the people who actually develop the game and better work conditions for them. Which might be true in alternate universe.
