The Metro series won't be leaving PC anytime soon

Metro Exodus Boycott Epic Games Store

Metro Exodus Boycott Epic Games Store

The move was announced less than a month before the game was expected to release and brought with it a $10 drop in price.

The post said that Epic Games and Deep Silver were partnering for exclusive access for its first year, but that those who already pre-ordered on Steam would still be able to download and play it there. Additionally, future DLC would be released on both platforms as well.

That sentiment appears to have been shared with a vocal subset of Metro fans, too: Since the shift was announced 4A Games" other titles in the Metro series have been the subject of a coordinated "review bomb' which has seen their Steam rankings plummet and their community pages filled with negative comments. While they said they couldn't categorically rule out ever doing timed exclusives in the future, for now "we definitely want to have the players choose the platform of their liking and make our portfolio available to as many outlets as possible".

THQ Nordic, the owner of Deep Silver, has since muddied the waters further by countering this statement and then countering its own counter, so the future of the Metro series if far from certain.

4A Games are "only" the developers, see, with Deep Silver providing funding and making the big business decisions. From ditching Steam to THQ Nordic saying the decision was entirely Koch Media's call, fans have had a lot to unpack over the weekend. Now, a 4A Games developer's forum post has sparked additional controversy by suggesting that if PC players boycott Exodus over the move away from Steam, the next Metro game might skip PC altogether. In it, the developer who goes by "scynet" said that while they understand why players might be angry, they're also disappointed at some of the fan response.

The CDC also recommends parents do not introduce their children to fluoride toothpaste until they turn 2. That led to efforts to add fluoride to tap water, toothpaste, mouthwash and other products.

Metro Exodus has been ripe with controversy over the last few days. It added that the recent comments were the individual developer's alone and "do not reflect Deep Silver's or 4A Games' view on the future of the franchise".

As Deep Silver and 4A Games stated, and as we noted in our story, those comments do not reflect Deep Silver's or 4A Games' view on the future of the Metro franchise.

Deep Silver, the publisher of Volition and 4A Games titles like the Metro series, has denied claims that it would be pulling future Metro games from PC if gamers continued to boycott it.

Of course, no one knew for sure that this was written by Deep Silver at first. Despite the third-person references to 4A Games, the statement coming from the official Metro Twitter meant that many assumed it was from 4A itself.

As a result of this forum post, Deep Silver put out a statement via Twitlonger.
