In the course of Gamescom, the leaders of the CD Projekt have discussed with the colleagues of PC Gamer, the aggressive strategy of the exclusive adopted by Epic Games to its Store and, therefore, on the possibility or not to embrace such a policy even for its own digital store on the PC, and the popular GOG.
The head of global communications of the Polish company, Marcin Traczyk, has tackled the thorny question of the exclusive of the Epic Store starting from the step back made by the same vertices of CD Projekt launching on Steam Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales after a brief stint as the exclusive GOG.
According to what was reported by Traczyk, in fact, “this thing has shown us that the policy of exclusive perhaps it does not work for us, because we do not want to limit the number of people who can access the game. If we can clearly communicate to our users the advantages offered by GOG, then we could convince them to get the game on our platform and not on that of others.”
The words of Marcin Traczyk, then, away, for the moment, the “spectrum” of the opposition between GOG and Epic Store, and between these two and Steam, on the theme of the exclusive. The main video game in development at CD Projekt, Cyberpunk 2077, will not be an exclusive Epic Games Store, but will be launched on GOG.com and Steam since the day of launch, which we recall is scheduled for April 16, 2020 on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
