Sales of Metro: Exodus seem to have satisfied publisher THQ Nordic, but there seems to be a small case due to some “non-responses” by CEO Lars Wingefors regarding the revenues on the Epic Games Store, after the disputes that accompanied the launch of the title.
Wingefors has indeed revealed that the physical copies of the game have sold as expected, but the digital ones have gone even better. Most of the copies (the CEO talks about ” absolute majority “) concern console versions, which is also a bit of a surprise, as Metro is traditionally seen as a PC series.
The launch of the game on PC, however, as we said at the beginning, was marked by various controversies due to the removal of the game on Steam practically at the last minute, by virtue of an exclusive agreement reached in extremis with Epic, for which the game has become exclusive to Epic Games Store.
When Wingefors was explicitly asked to sell on that platform, the CEO of THQ Nordic preferred not to comment, and even later when asked if he was satisfied with the results obtained by the company on that store, he tacked the answer so to include all digital platforms.
In short, the situation is unclear: and if the sales of Metro Exodus on the Epic Games Store had been affected by the discontent of the fans?
