Epic Games Store September Update Plans

Epic Games offers a September Feature Update for the Epic Games Store outlining the next steps for the Epic Games Store. These include new library view options, improved patch sizes, the addition of playtime tracking, support for bundles, and more. They also look beyond these immediate plans to outline other upcoming features such as a new storefront, an in-game overlay, and more. Here's more on that:
NEW Storefront
A new store and browsing experience, including curated collections. You'll be able to see what games are trending, filter by genre, and more, so that you can find games you'll love faster and easier than before.

Epic Games Overlay - Checkout
We're creating an in-game overlay. It'll be a while before it's fully realized but our thoughts here are centered around giving you ways to interact with your Epic Games store (e.g. library, social, etc.) while in-game.

There is always a new young gen of gamers just getting started who couldn't care less about the Store Wars since they don't have any old and established libraries yet.
There are also more launchers with stores now than 10 years ago and most of them have exclusive content. EA's Origin, Uplay, and Battle.net (desktop launcher) are all less than 10 years old and all have exclusives (or at least games that require them being installed). Heck, from what I can tell even GOG has a GOG Galaxy exclusive in Gwent.

People growing up as PC gamers in this market are likely going to be less tied to a single client than those with more than a decade's worth of games on Steam. Want to play AssCreed? Open up Uplay. An EA Sports title? Boot up Origin. Fortnite? Start the Epic Launcher.

Launcher exclusives are just a fact of life in the current PC gaming market. Which means that having multiple launchers (and stores) installed is likely going to be the norm going forward. You may be able to buy the games on a different storefront, but you'll need the launcher (+store) to run it.
