In its earnings call for the third quarter of the fiscal year 2019, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot talked about The Division 2 releasing exclusively on the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft’s own Uplay Store.
Because people would rather buy directly from Uplay then buy from Epic's shoddy storefront. If Steam was available the sales would be even higher.
What's wrong with Epic's store?
Too many things to list. The only defense I have seen for it from people is "competition" when forcibly limiting where you can buy a game is not competition but a monopoly. Valve never paid publishers and devs to release exclusively, they did it themselves.
"One big omission is the lack of cloud saving, but it’s also missing even more basic stuff like the ability to chat with friends. Popular extras like achievements and user reviews are nowhere to be found. But maybe worst of all is that there’s also no offline mode, which means your purchases are locked off from being played if you aren’t connected to the internet – that would be a dealbreaker in so many other instances." From IGN. Yes there is no way I could support Epic at the moment unless they fix many of these issues.
I only buy games on steam. They are killing the PC gameing by having games only on one store
Prefer Uplay over Epic Store so its fine for me.
