It better not be full release price since it'll be an old game by release time, but yeah I hope it comes out.

Epic Games Store exclusive would be hilarious too. Everybody raved about this game on console and then when PC players find out it's an "exclusive" it'll test their limits and make excuses for the many who will cave in.

@F34R it'll be full release price. GTAV was always full price up until like 18 months ago for a 5 year old game.

It won't be an exclusive. It must be available on Rockstar's own store, whatever they call it these days. It might be available on Steam as well, since they don't have to worry about their game selling well. Epic would have to bribe them with a ton of money not to release it on Steam.

Why would Rockstar give up that 18% extra when they know its going to sell just as well on either store? They've expressed their disdain at the way Valves run things before, all the extra systems required to release on their platform, I wouldn't be surprised if this wasn't on Steam now developers have choice on the matter.

The user base is now essentially equal in size, but one store offers to work closer with you, allow better integration, and gives you 25% more money from your sales. The only one who'd have to bribe here is Valve surely?

It's worth noting, Epic "exclusives" doesn't mean its only sold on the Epic store. These exclusives are done in a coalition of more or less all the PC gaming stores atm with heavy integration with developers own stores. It's literally, just not Steam, because its problematic.

yeah coalition deals are still considered exclusives.
Fact is that Epic could have exclusivity rights over all other competitors.

Thats still considered an exclusive deal "if" it shows on a 3rd party store and only that store.

But many people are forgetting that RDR2 didnt make the sales they expected. And the reviews are quite mixed on this one. I don't think its going to sell as well as you all think.

Depends how you look at it, RDR2 was still the best selling game of 2018 in many markets, including the US. Sure it didn't meet up to "expectations", so essentially not going near GTAV, but that's still the highest grossing piece of any media of all time.

Yes but once the consumer catches on that its not that great then many will not bother with the PC.

GTAV sales had an absolutely huge chunk of sales owed to a single user buying on console, and buying once again for PC later. I think this scenario will be no where near as big.
