    12 months does seem like a long time to hold onto a title for the same platform. At the same time I'm not so interested in the hitman series so not really too bothered.

    They are still pulling this evil trick then, despite the fact their sales are falling and they are about to spend millions losing a court case to Apple

    Luckily I don't care so much about this series, but sad for those that want to play it and now only have Epic's fixed price option if they want to play on PC.

    Would have enjoyed adding yet another Hitman game to my list, however the anti consumer timed 12 month deal with Epic means it's yet another game I'll probably never bother with.

    While I'm not a fan of exclusives, this is time limited which is better... it just has a ridiculously long time limit of 12 months so 'it could be worse'.

    Having said that I will be getting the free hitman game when it comes out

    well I will get this in 12mth time then. I have all the other hitman games on steam and just do not want to install another storefront to play the most recent game. Metro was the same, had the other games on steam and waited 12mths until I could purchase it. These exclusives just delay my purchase. Plus there is plenty of good stuff coming out soon like the BG III EA & Cyberpunk 2077 etc.

    I personally don't care about it anymore. Searching a game(e.g. by type) in steam library is f***ing impossible task, unless you are searching store and checking if you own the title.
    They have all the data to make the library search awesome but they are not doing that to boost sells I guess.
    If they dont care about my library experience, I dont care about the store.

    So I am bearing with this exclusives sh;t for the hope of better stores and competition.
    Anyway, recently it is the epicstore I run more often than steam, yet still my library on steam is much bigger (~1000 titles).

    Personally I don't care about EGS, it's just another launcher. But I really dislike the company so I'd rather be petty and wait a year.

    Compared to having to hunt for physical media to play a game I don't see running a few store programs as that bad. I would guess if there is an exclusive for 12 months, then the game will be on sale just before that time runs out.

    Totally agree. Compared to the old days of trawling through your shelf looking for the disc box, then finding you never put the disc back, then going on the treasure hunt through all the games you recently played to find said disc, having a couple of launchers really isn't that bad.
