THQ Nordic Doesn't Exclude The Possibility Of Bringing Metro Back To Steam

Yesterday, Epic Games revealed the post-apocalyptic shooter Metro Exodus would be coming to the Epic Games store as an exclusive. As a result, the game was removed from other online stores, like Steam. However, the U.S. publisher of Metro, THQ Nordic, offered some additional context to the discussion in a series of tweets.

Those who already pre-purchased Metro Exodus on Steam or other digital platforms will still receive the game on February 15. However, pre-orders are no longer open anywhere other than the Epic Store. Thankfully, owners of Metro Exodus on other platforms will still recieve the DLC, and Deep Silver has even stated that it plans to bring Metro Exodus back to platforms like Steam by February of 2020.

 

Given the three different responses by the three companies with controlling interest in Metro, it's clear that these organizations have some communication issues, which are creating bad optics. In the meantime, Metro is caught in the middle.
