According to PC Gamer, Epic dropped the $ 200 million figure to Sony for 4 or 6 exclusive titles. The exact date of when these negotiations started is unknown as it is stated that they “awaited a response” from PlayStation.
The truth is that we have already seen cases of games distributed by Sony that have reached the Epic Games Store. Such is the case with Predator: Hunting Grounds, which for 1 year was exclusive to that store, as well as ReadySet Heroes.
On the other hand, Horizon: Zero Dawn and Days Gone, in addition to coming out on the Epic Games store, we will also see both games on the well-known Steam platform.
Good relations between Sony and Epic would be nothing new. In July of last year, the Japanese firm invested $ 200 million in Tim Sweeney’s platform.
Last month, they made a similar move, committing $ 200 million. According to Epic, this is a “strategic investment.” The truth is that Sony already has a minority stake in Epic.
Epic sought to get closer to Nintendo and Xbox
Similar to the move Epic would have made with Sony. They tried to do the same with Microsoft and Nintendo.
However, in both cases things did not materialize. In the case of Xbox, the Game Pass service goes against the policies of Epic Games and Phil Spencer, one of the best-known faces of the company, meets several times with Gabe Newell of Valve.
On the Nintendo side, there was not much hope because given the Japanese company’s history of not taking its games to other platforms, the negotiations never began.
What do you think? Would you like to see Epic and PlayStation reach an agreement to bring their exclusives to PC?
