Metro Exodus Review Bombed Following Epic Games Reveal

Metro Exodus Review Bombed Following Epic Games Reveal

Earlier this week, it came to light that Deep Silver’s Metro Exodus would not be releasing on Steam, and instead would be releasing as an Epic Games Store exclusive for the PC platform. Now, in the wake of the announcement, members of the Steam community have begun to review bomb other games from Deep Silver as retaliation.

Steam users have begun to post some colorful, negative reviews in retaliation for Deep Silver choosing not to release Metro Exodus on the popular digital game platform. According to many users, this is a massive sellout and Deep Silver “sold their soul” when it made the decision to pull out of its deal with Steam to publish instead through the Epic Games Store. This is most prevalent when looking at the review page for Metro: Last Light Redux.

With many big name publishers beginning to jump ship and switch over to the Epic Games Store, it should be no surprise that other publishers have begun to follow suit. Whether or not this will spur a significant change from Steam remains to be seen, though if the digital games platform doesn’t take any action, it may soon be left to the wayside. Here’s the description of Metro Exodus from the publisher:

“Metro Exodus is an epic, story-driven first person shooter from 4A Games that blends deadly combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror in one of the most immersive game worlds ever created.”

Metro Exodus launches for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on February 15, 2019.

    Isn’t it cheaper for the Developer to go with Epic Game Store over steam, as in the Developer gets to keep more of the profits? If so then they should go with Epic, it all boils down to $$$$. As far as “review bombing”, that seems very childish. Steam users, sound like Xbox Live users, 13 year old kids who play COD.
