That's a very odd tweet. The link leads to a completely unrelated article, whilst there's a link to another tweet that's also been deleted apparently. Not sure what's up there.

Im logging in for this because:

SERIOUSLY????????

You garner so much goodwill from the community,
you make it a POINT that there are no microtransactions “.

And then you taint ALL of it for a quick buck.
Never been so disappointed in your company and feel honestly like I’ve been taken for a ride.

Hopefully its a mistake/fake.

Worth pointing out, the trailer specifically lists Steam as a platform. Things could change, of course, but given the tweet offers nothing to back up the claim and links to the wrong article, I'm inclined to believe this hasn't changed.

The trailer wouldn't be lying! It'll come to Steam, eventually.

If this ends up being true, Obsidian can literally go **** themselves.

If this ends up being true, it will almost certainly be entirely a Private Division decision.

Yep,if this happens, I'm definitely out. I realize saying so doesn't matter much, since Obs spurns these forums, but still worth saying to the audience.

Enjoy the higher percentage on lower sales.

I'm honestly surprised the MS overlords would allow this. Its another weird relationship with a third party that doesn't benefit them.

TOW's publisher is (a subsidiary of) Take-Two, not Obsidian. Put the pitchforks and torches away.

 

And by the way, PoliticallyCorrectGamesN is trash, and you shouldn't give them the clicks.

I will cross my fingers it'll be Epic exclusive.

I'm not really familiar with them, what's wrong with them?

 

The 'witty' pseudonym you've given them makes me think I'll probably find the reasons given laughable, but I'm open to being persuaded otherwise.

They have misspelled The Outer Wilds, game with similar title, but not the same.

I like the fact that the loading page says: The game contains mature content  recommended only for ages 0+

*IF* this story is true, there is no way in hell I buy this game.  And I've probably owned every Obsidian game made up to this point.

 

The Epic game launcher is literally spyware that data mines your PC, the first autocomplete suggestion if you google "epic launcher" is "spyware" lmao.
