what Gnuffi is saying is that it will no longer be on sale on Steam afterwards, not that your game (which you don’t even own) will be removed from Steam
i know that but i still haven’t seen that message from a reliable source anywhere,
Gnuffi gave you the wording: “it will remain on sale until then” until means not afterwards
you yourself also gave the wording:
this means if you own it before they remove it from the Steam store, once they remove it u will not be able to buy it and will hence no longer be able to play it on Steam unless you previously owned it
the proof that this is what it means is that otherwise there would be no need to specify it, as you can NEVER play a game on Steam that you don’t own (or have another type of access to)
Their original statement:
The PC version of Rocket League will come to the Epic Games store in late 2019. In the meantime, it will continue to be available for purchase on Steam; thereafter it will continue to be supported on Steam for all existing purchasers.
meantime it will remain available for purchase on Steam,
thereafter it will be supported
how is that not clear as day?
it’s funny how half a message change is meaning anyway i’m out i guess there’s no source
is and remains, not is and will remain…
you seem to neglect the fact that they refuse to confirm that they’ll not remove it although that’s what everyone wanted them to do and it would cost them nothing to do so. In fact, it would be a great gain in goodwill for them to do so and they certainly would do it if they could, but they can’t say it if it’s not true cuz that would be cause them to lose even more goodwill (whatever might be left).
and again, im quite neutral, i’ve been insulted by several ppl here on several occasions for defending Epic even in fact
the thing is, i put myself in their shoes, i bought a game and i don’t know what to do yet, i won’t go confirm something that some diehard steam fan want at the cost of blocking possibility, even if i would not remove the game on steam myself, i will never say that it will never happen. if i say rocket ill stay on steam forever and then steam decided to change his monstrous 35% take to a 85%, you can be sure i would remove it and the fact that i said otherwise would backfire on me.
the only thing i asked for was the source to this message, personally i couldn’t care less about the war epic/steam but i sure love my sources
Gnuffi paraphrased and said
but it literally means the same thing they said:
which u can find here, where Epic’s initial press release was reported:
it does only if you take the second part of the message
thanks for the link
Rocket League's large Steam player base has no immediate need to panic, however. Until the transition is complete, some time in "late 2019", Rocket League will remain on sale through Steam, and Psyonix says it will "continue to support" the game on Valve's platform. Speaking to Variety, the developer clarified that Steam users will continue to receive "patches, DLC and all other content that hits the PC version of the game through the Epic Game Store".
this is what i expect, rocket league stays on steam until the epic version is ready(that was written black on white). then i’m sure the faith of rocket league will depend of a hard negotiation between steam and epic to get a better % rate on the profit.
if steam loses rocket league it’s a big lost for valve and maybe the lost it will take to changes things
in conclusion i still don’t care bout what happen but i was able to analyse the source myself thanks @M00 for the link
…Not only Outer Wilds but Now Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint joins the store.
Oops @M00 saw your comment…
No Matter…Here’s another article:
Now that i’m at home
Uplay sales growing a lot due to putting games on Epic iso Steam
lol i swear i saw this exact article couple of months, describing the same (obvious) effect
Add another to the list:
I think it was on their web page too. Hopefully it comes to steam, since Flower (made by the same company) is on Steam right now.
Yeah we’ve waited 7 years for this game, I think I can wait a couple more for it to be a freely traded title.
Looks like Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered is going to be an Epic Games exclusive on PC.
Glad Xbox decided to do this finally, we saw hints of this when they would put a game or two up every now and then on steam but i’m glad that they are now fully committed to putting there games on other stores and not be wishy washy about it.
sorta makes sense with TWD/Skybound “signing” with epic, but might be a foreboding tale of what’s to come “more” of
