They new months before and said nothing. That is foul advertisement.

Should've just announced it then, don't see why they wouldn't.

Yeah and potential customers weren't informed until like 2 weeks before the game's launch.

Wow, so if this is true that they knew about this deal since last year in June and decided to keep their mouth shut until the very last minute and pull a switcheroo, then that is utterly shamefull of Deep Silver. They probably waited until last minute before signing so they can get all dem extra sales on Steam before pulling it from the storefront. What a scummy move on their part.

Can't they possibly get a lawsuit for pulling that crap for advertising on somebody else's platform and then pulling it last minute to force them to buy it on the Epic Store? (Since it's literally the only place to buy it on PC now, no other options AT ALL) I feel like that is a real shitty way of them going about this. Honestly I might not even bother getting this at all now. This is a disgusting business practice. They really want to be the worst company of 2019 it seems, even worse then EA and Bethesda.

Shame on you Deep Silver. Shame on you.

It's so weird when the saying "It can't get any worse" applies to the same topic several times

Very, we rarely see things like this happen when things get worse and worse.

CP_Company45d ago

No, they are not nothing like EA or Activision or Bethesda. They don't release broken games with microtransactions. Their game is quality. Publisher screw them over.

That's who I was referring to. The publisher Deep Silver. I never once mentioned the developers in my comment other than the fact they knew about the deal since last e3 2018.
