Mechwarrior 5: Mercenaries is due for release on December 10, and we've just received some big news about the PC launch, since Piranha Games has announced that the game isn't being released for Steam anymore, and will be yet another Epic Games Store exclusive. If you have pre-ordered the game on Steam though, you will get a refund, but you need to apply for it by September 1.
Those who have already pre-ordered get to keep their bonus content, but won't be able to participate in the upcoming beta test scheduled for November, and here's what Piranha had to say on the exclusivity deal:
"Our partnership with Epic Games store allows us the opportunity to make sure MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries meets our internal goal of creating the best MechWarrior game possible."
This month Rebellion co-founder Jason Kingsley said that Epic Games is "paying through the nose to build their store", and this is evident from their big deals with Borderlands 3, Metro Exodus, and more.
Does exclusivity bother you?
