The Outer Worlds won't launch on Steam

Recommended Posts

Let's try and not re-enact some Gamergate garbage over a concerning story that has a decent chance of being BS anyway.

Why are you people getting so wound up when there's really very little evidence so far?

 

Calm down folks.

Looks like pcgamesn tweet is gone, they are trashy click-bait writers who often don't know what they are talking about, their twiiter account has barely any traction.

 

Hopefully Obsidian see the good sense in not talking Epic's money, the backlash is not worth it. Fortnite kids are not going to buy into a game like The Outer Worlds, few are going to leave Steam and sign up to Epic's outlet.

This would be an easy story for the publisher to confirm/deny, but nobody has.  It's one of those things that's only blown up because of silence on the part of the people who can answer the question. 

 

Well, and because there has been a lot of internet controversy about the Epic launcher being really blatant spyware, and games like Metro Exodus and Phoenix Point going Epic exclusive out of nowhere after advertising Steam access.

The frequent virtue signaling is just the icing on the cake.

Get a load of this "alpha" male. Just because you're incapable of being a decent person, it doesn't mean that others are "faking" it.

 

Oh, look. Another slacktivist who believes he's changing the world, one furious post at a time.

I love how people use the words "alpha male" as if it were something bad.

 

/sarcasm

 

Everyone knows it's best to be an early access male.

Epic Game store is the most awful platform out there, way worse comparing to any of its competitior, whether it's Uplay or Origin. The worst part is they are not trying to make their platform better, they are just trying to buy exclusive to force people use it, meanwhile bluffing about "helping" the developer. And on top of it being ****, I can't even buy a game from it just because I live in China. 

 

If Outer Worlds go there for the money I won't touch this game even when it comes back to steam a year later. Seriously, **** Epic Game store, the soon it rots in hell the better.

And its confirmed.

 

Obsidian, today you lost a sale, a loyal customer and a longtime fan.

 

Hope it was worth it.

I can't even buy the game even if I'm willing to look past all of EGS's bull****, just because I live in China.

Yup, Epic Game store has The Outer Worlds listed now and Steam changed its release date to 2020.  It's real.

 

Go to hell.  I'm out.

The dramatics to ensue will make today worth waking up for.

The Outer Worlds will be available from EGS and the Microsoft Windows 10 Store.

So it's also on Windows Store, what's the point of it being on EGS only then, just to **** on steam?

Hey Obsidian, this is probably a pipe dream, but how about you offer free Steam keys (when the game comes out on Steam) to people who buy the game on the Microsoft store? Or at least those who pre-order or buy a special edition or something. Would be a way to sweeten the pill.

Well I will wait for 2020 then and for it to go on a 85% steam sale so I can get it for like 5 bucks. Take that. **** Epic games.

Long time obsidian/sci-fi fan here. Just joining the chorus to say I will no longer be buying this game, if it is only releasing on the terrible epic games platform or windows store. Please reconsider this

I love Obsidian, I own every one of their games that you can own.  I will wait a year for Outer Worlds and buy it on Steam.  Epic Exclusive = **** No.

I'm just glad it's not a real exclusive as it will be on 2 stores at launch though I do hope that after a year it comes to GOG
