Metro Exodus’ Epic Games Store Exclusivity Is Ending Soon
The Epic Games Store made some big moves to gain traction in the game distribution market, making deals for timed exclusives and gaining a little bit of attention—both good and bad—from fans. Metro Exodus was included as one of these timed-exclusive titles and while the move created a backlash when it was first announced, it looks like PC players can finally start playing the game on Steam starting next week.
A recent post from the official Metro Twitter account reveals that the title is set to finally make its return on February 15th. The post thanks fans for their patience and passion for the series and gives a series of times fans can expect to see the game arrive. Unfortunately, the post didn’t mention whether the Steam launch might include a discounted price or a bundle option containing launch-exclusive items or downloadable content. Though, more information is likely to land as the release date gets closer.

Announced over a year ago, the move to make Metro Exodus an Epic Games Store exclusive was considered a peculiar move for a third-party company on the PC platform. The decision was one that got quite a bit of backlash at the time, the company pulling the game from Steam just weeks before release and after many pre-orders for the title had been made. Thankfully, the Epic Games deal is set to come to an end soon.
Metro Exodus is currently available on PC through the Epic Games Launcher, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Google Stadia. The game’s release onto Steam is set to arrive on February 15th.
