This is going to happen more and more. We’re getting tiers of games, where the lowest rung is ‘willing to be bundled in a fanatical/indiegala bundle’. Normal humble bundles have become very rare and don’t seem to have that much value anymore. The humble monthly is the new ‘big’ bundle, and games that are willing to be in it will often also agree to be on gamepass, or be given away by twitch and epic. Gamepass does have that influx of games that signed exclusivity deals with epic but want another income stream, so that’s an even higher tier. So we have
- Epic exclusives on gamepass.
- Games relying on actual sales.
- Gamepass/humble monthly/twitch prime/epic freebies.
- Indiegala (mostly trash)
