You don’t think the new XBox Game Pass for PC with it’s super cheap subscription model will change that?
Yes, it was Snapshot’s decision. But the initial announcement offered a full year’s free DLC to backers, plus a full refund to anyone not happy with it. They later clarified, that same day, that backers would receive a Steam/GoG key anyway regardless of whether they used their Epic key. It was about as generous an offer as they could have made, the only issue was that people who refused to use the Epic store had to then wait a year. Coming to the XBox Game Pass for PC (really, I have to type that each time?) provides another option, but not if you were hoping to add it to your Steam/GoG library straight away.
