Epic Games Store Snags Quantic Dream’s Previous PlayStation Exclusives

Detroit: Become Human etc are no longer PlayStation exclusives.

In a pretty significant announcement during GDC 2019, the Epic Games Store will partner with Quantic Dream to exclusively release their back catalogue on PC. Detroit: Become Human, Beyond: Two Souls, and Heavy Rain will all be available on the store.

There are no release dates for any of the ports, but the store pages are up. Will be interesting to see how Detroit works without you having to shake your DualShock every five minutes.

Epic will also continue to partner with Ubisoft to add their previous games to their library and also Ubisoft’s new games, though it’s unclear if these will still be “exclusive” to the Epic Games Store as was the case with The Division 2.

In addition, Obsidian’s The Outer Worlds will be coming to the Epic Games Store and Microsoft Windows 10 Store, which makes it seem like it may be skipping Steam. Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, another game from Private Division (the publisher of The Outer Worlds), will be exclusive to Epic for an entire year.

Other timed exclusives include Control, Journey to the Savage Planet, Dauntless, The Cycle, Afterparty, The Sinking City, Proletariat’s Spellbreak, and Phoenix Point.

And one final flourish from Epic announced at GDC 2019: they will soon start allowing key selling on Humble Bundle.
