I wanted to buy this and use it as a TV title for desert exploration with my wife. I hated the gameplay of 2033 but still want to support the dev from Ukraine. With Epic in the picture, that's not going to happen.
I won't be buying this at launch then which is a shame. I will wait to see what happens. Maybe down the road they'll release it on Steam? I just read the The Division 2 isn't coming to Steam either, but rather on Epic Launcher. I don't know what is going to happen though in the future... everyone is going to want to open their own storefront so they don't have to pay Steam a cut, but what is going to be the average consumer's breaking point for launchers? I know I am at mine. I got Steam, GOG, UPlay, and Origin. I'm not installing another.
