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.

Opinions are a dime a dozen but here goes …

Regardless of the current short term shenanigans, Tencent is a 40% shareholder of Epic. Mr. Sweeney has stated they have no influence on the decision making. However, someone owning that much of your company has leverage, and when the Fortnite money printing press starts its decline, who do you think buys them out? Epic isn't even in the same league in regards to company value.

Mr. Sweeney will be fine, and will be well set and very wealthy regardless of how this plays out. However, this conversation seems like it should be Tencent vs Valve, as I doubt Epic controls the reigns of this situation long term. And when speaking of who you would rather see succeed T vs V, I believe you go with Valve for a Myriad of reasons.
