Well, that makes it an easy call...

I won't be buying this until it's available on Steam. Period. If they want MY money, they make it available on the platform I choose.

I would bet that they couldn't give a flying chuff.

You're the one losing out.

100% this, AlienxALX is spot on right. They don't care about losing a few peoples (or even hundreds) of peoples money that don't wanna buy the game off the EPIC storefront and who instead want it on STEAM.

People act like STEAM is the best storefront because X or Y reason, the devs and the publisher don't care about that at all. They care about making as much money as they can and when STEAM takes 30% and EPIC takes...12%? that is a huge difference in the revenue they can generate.

STEAM is overpriced with how much they take and they need to realize that finally. I'm not saying EPIC is the end all storefront because it isn't but on the revenue generation aspect it beats STEAM handily.

Plus....its Red Dead 2, it doesn't exactly need to be on STEAM to gain any foothold or traction for people to buy it haha. Everyone knows about the game and is anticipating buying it for PC (I've had it for console so idc about it for my pc; my Xbox one x and 4k tv make everything look just as good imo and the little difference in graphic fidelity means nothing to me).

The only people going to be missing out are the ones who are saying "STEAM or I'm not buying it!" or "I'll wait til its on STEAM since I don't want another launcher installed.." cuz the few hundred MB of storage it takes up is so bad...and clicking the other launcher and pressing play on the game is so hard....

/Rant done. Sorry.

It is worth remembering that GTA V was available as a standalone title as well as on Steam. Take-Two have wanted to avoid Steam's fees for a while.

Maybe I should just answer in memes from now on, because no amount of words can counter dumb actions.

Why does everything need to be made available through Steam ? you should be pointing fingers at Valve for being lazy and doing absolutely nothing for over a decade.

Was it IV where you had to use Social Club?

I wasn't happy about that but whatev. I really have much more important things to care about.

It's a 4chan rumor. But it makes no difference. In fact, it only cements my decision further.
