Now Epic is trying to trick and skip the Steam footprint, and some PC players are very angry about it. Here’s the reason.

Epic said it would only take around 12 percent of the developer’s revenue on its platform, compared to Steam which took 30 percent. They also promise directory games that are quality and professionally curated rather than Steam, which is only limited to genre games, and they say that reviews from customers for games will be entirely optional for developers, of course, this is a strange feature but they argue that features to counteract the toxic review that filled the Steam game page for years.
Epic has several exclusive games during this initial launch like Ashen and Hades. But when it began to accumulate a series of increasingly famous exclusive games from triple-A studios, such as Walking Dead: The Final Season, The Division 2, and works by David Cage, that’s when the PC players began to get angry.
The critical point is Metro: Exodus. Epic announced its exclusivity on January 28, just two weeks before the game’s launch. It was very close to the launch so it already had its own Steam page, and many customers had already ordered at the Valve service.
