Forums - PC Discussion - Borderlands 3 PC is releasing exclusively on the Epic Store in September

Borderlands 3 will release September 13 on the Epic Games Store, which will be the only place to buy it on PC until April 2020. After that six month exclusivity period, it'll release "on additional PC digital storefronts," according to a press release from 2K.

Steam can't catch a break!

Pfft, what's the hurry? Games like Borderlands shouldn't even be played before the inevitable "Game of the Year" or whatever special edition with all the DLCs that come several months later.



Nintendo is selling their IPs to Microsoft and this is true because:

So are Epic saying: "Use our engine and you have to put the game on our store first."?



Hmm, pie.

My guess is that Epic Store timed exclusives must work like other timed exclusive business done by third parties with console makers: some money in exchange of timed exclusivity.

Nope, Epic is saying, 'use our store, and lose only 12% of the revenue, and have better visibility than on a shitty, over-clogged app-store.

Good. Steam finally has a relevant competitor. Maybe Gabe will get up from his lazy ass and start doing relevant stuff again. Where is my fucking Portal 3?!?!?

Dude, piracy is wrong, ok? But when you pirate, always go with CODEX and Fitgirl repacks.

That's how I roll with both Borderlands and Fallout, to me the release date for those games comes like a year later from the initial release. This is even more true for Fallout due to bug fixes and the killer mods that take a while to show up. :)

I'm really enjoying this Steam vs Epic Games Store debacle. Getting a free game every two weeks is quite nice, and hopefully it will encourage Steam to step up their game. I am, however, a bit skeptical about the long-term goals of Epic. They have a sweet, 12% cut of the revenue, which is a major draw for publishers compared to Steam's 30%. The reason I'm skeptical is because I can see Epic raising this fee should they ever be in a position where they can do so.

In other words, Epic isn't being generous with their 12% share... They are simply doing what they need to do in an attempt to get the Lion's share.
