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.

Ubi will lock out third party key sellers. IIRC it was reported here on Blue's just a little while ago, too, but I cannot find the news.

Oh, yeah, it's been like that for a while on Green Man Gaming. It's just that since Epic came onto the scene, anything that is "exclusive" to Epic (even if it's on UPlay) has been either out of stock, or had no discount when normally games have a 10-20% discount before launch.

Anno 1800 and The Division 2 are both out of stock on GMG, for example. So either some kind of agreement was made with Epic to keep sales outside of those two companies to a minimum (sales ended on the day of release on 3rd party), or Ubisoft straight wants a bigger cut?

Borderlands 3 also doesn't have a discount anywhere (unrelated dev though).
