Of course it is. I didn’t know that was ever a question.
Epic is building a store of games that are popular. They are offering better revenue to the developers to do it.
On the other side the consumer loses access to some great steam features for at least a year (when it will be on Steam) but, you should have a less cluttered store with a greater percentage of popular games.
Is it worth it? Probably not for everyone but if you want the game, you need to go to Epic. And if you don’t, or are willing to wait a year, then you have other options.
On the upside, in one year, we will see games that are available on both steam and epic, and gamers will have a choice. Hopefully, by that time, the Epic Store will either be good enough, or the games will be cheap enough that the choice will matter. Hopefully, by that time, people won’t be worried that Epic will go bankrupt and the games will disappear, like Impulse did.
Hopefully by that time, Epic will have enough of your friends on it or you will have a library that is big enough on their that Steam isn’t a necessity, because that’s were all your stuff is.
Hopefully enough developers will have the option to go to Epic, and get a bigger slice of the pie, that steam will be forced to respond by offering more money back to developers themselves.
At least, that is the road map that I see.
Anyway, I say, vote with your wallets. It’s what you do when it comes to a product or a service.
I am hopeful, but in the mean time. Free GAMES!
