Thought this deserved its own thread because of how ridiculous it is. So apparently a 4A Games developer has chosen to respond to the whole Epic Games store controversy surrounding Metro Exodus in saying that he thinks if players do boycott then definitely the next game will not be on PC.
This is by far one of the dumbest dev responses I think i've ever seen, what even is the logic here. It's like saying "How DARE you choose to vote with your wallet over our shitty decision" and then attempting to blackmail all PC players with "well if you don't just deal with it and buy it we won't put the next one on PC so take that", not to even mention that would affect them significantly more than it would ever affect PC players since it means they are losing a lot more profit so... congratulations I guess?
Keep in mind this is just the thoughts of one developer and isn't a unified statement by all of them or anything, but it doesn't make it any less dumb of a thing to say.
Edit: An official statement was made
The recent decision to move Metro Exodus from Steam to the Epic Game Store was made by Koch Media / Deep (cont) https://t.co/E6xcZNkHJV— Metro Exodus (@MetroVideoGame) February 3, 2019
