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 guess, but why? Ubisoft has their own storefront? Is Walmart going to start selling exclusive cookware at Target next?

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***.

Have to agree, not sure why UBI is doing this stupid shit. it only makes them look asinine.

I love the Ghost Recon games, and this is one I will be picking up. But it will not be from Epic, I can assure you of that. I avoid Epic, they are a plaque to humanity.

Anything Valve could say would get twisted and taken out of context. Epic would likely cry foul and use it evidence that they are trying to squash the "underdog" or however EPIC views itself.

Its easier for Valve to just let their work and past history stand for itself at the moment.

Maybe this is off-topic, but from what I've seen of this game I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole, even if it was offered for free from GoG.

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.

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.

And another game I will not be buying.

Basically this. EGS is a loss for the customer. No cheper and a featureless client.

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.

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.
