Metro Exodus’s timed-exclusivity on the Epic Store was the decision of Koch Media, according to a statement released by THQ Nordic.

THQ Nordic bought Koch Media early February 2018, included the publishing label Deep Silver who owns the Metro IP. Koch Media purchased the Metro IP during the liquidation of THQ in 2013 and has since operated independently with little input from THQ Nordic.

The statement also included that they are not ruling out future timed exclusives on their title after the shift of Metro Exodus to the Epic store.

According to Deep Silver, the publisher of Metro Exodus, the game will be available on Steam and other online store fronts in February 2020, when the deal with Epic expires.

Metro Exodus launches February 15th on Xbox, Playstation and now, Epic Store on PC.
