Right after the store launched Epic created a lot of buzz for it by stating they will be giving away a free game every two weeks and the first one would be the critically acclaimed “Subnautica”. But yet only after a few months after launch the store is back in the news after creating controversy when major games such “Tom Clancy’s The Division 2” and “Metro: Exodus” announced they would be exclusively playable for PC players only on The Epic Store. This sparked controversy because Steam has forever been a major tent pole in PC gaming. Most users owning hundreds if not thousands of games on Steam.
