With a message on Twitter, Lorne Lanning announced that Oddworld Soulstorm will be released exclusively on Epic Games Store and will therefore not be available on other stores like Steam or GOG.
The reason for this choice was clearly specified by the author of the series, who spoke of the need to obtain additional funds to complete the development of the game and achieve the quality standards imposed by the team’s vision without having to cut content due to lack of budget. Compared to the initial plans, Oddworld Soulstorm has grown enormously and for this reason, additional funding has become necessary, found precisely through the exclusive Epic Games Store on PC.
Oddworld Soulstorm (remake of Oddworld Abe’s Exoddus, released in 1999 on PSOne and PC) will be released in 2020 on Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, at the moment the exact launch window has not been provided. As for Nintendo Switch, Lorne Lanning announced “a special year for Switch owner,” words that would suggest a possible arrival of the previous games of the series on the hybrid console of the Kyoto house, like Oddworld New n Tasty , the remake of the first Oddworld released in 2014 and welcomed by audiences and critics.
