THQ Nordic issues official statement about Metro Exodus releasing as timed-exclusive on Epic’s store

In a series of tweets, THQ Nordic stated its official stance regarding the timed-exclusive release of Metro Exodus on Epic’s digital store. According to THQ Nordic, the decision to release the game initially only on Epic’s store was made entirely by Koch Media who is responsible for Deep Silver’s games.

What’s really interesting here is that THQ Nordic does not exclude the possibility of timed-exclusive deals happening again. Now I’m pretty sure that all games that will be coming from THQ Nordic won’t be timed-exclusive to any store, however this could happen for games published by Deep Silver/Koch Media.

For those unaware, even though THQ Nordic has acquired Koch Media, the latter is free to make independent decisions regarding its titles.

Metro Exodus will release on February 15th, 2019, on Epic’s store and will be coming to Steam in February 2020!
