Will GOG Embrace the Exclusive Epic Store Policy? Here Is CD Projekt’s Answer

GOG Embrace

During Gamescom, the directors of CD Projekt discussed with PC Gamer colleagues about the aggressive strategy of the exclusives adopted by Epic Games for its Store and, therefore, on the possibility or not of embracing such a policy also for its own store digital on PC, the popular GOG.

The global communications manager of the Polish company, Marcin Traczyk, has faced the thorny issue of the exclusive Epic Store starting from the backward step made by the same leaders of CD Projekt by launching on Steam Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales after a brief period as exclusive GOG.

According to reports from Traczyk, in fact, “this thing has shown us that the policy of exclusives may not work for us, because we don’t want to limit the number of people who can access the game. If we can clearly communicate the advantages to our users offered by GOG, then we could convince them to get the game on our platform and not on others. 

The words of Marcin Traczyk, therefore, move away for the moment the “specter” of the contrast between GOG and Epic Store, and between these two and Steam, on the theme of exclusives. The main video game in development at CD Projekt, Cyberpunk 2077, will not be an exclusive Epic Games Store but will be launched on GOG.com and Steam from launch day, which we remember to be scheduled for April 16th, 2020 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
