Epic Games will give away free cross-platform Fortnite tools to developers

Detroit: Become Human and Beyond Two Souls Leaving PlayStation Exclusivity Behind

Epic has done this before, announcing late previous year that former PlayStation exclusive Journey will release via the Epic Store (it's still listed as "coming soon").

Epic Games confirmed that The Outer Worlds, the upcoming sci-fi RPG from Fallout: New Vegas developer Obsidian Entertainment, will be on its store at launch. Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, which shares a publisher with The Outer Worlds (Take-Two's Private Division), will be an exclusive too.

Remedy's ambitious new sci-horror shooter IP Control is another big one crossing over (it too has been on Steam for a long while). According to some new stats shared by Epic Games, clearly the move to making the latest entry in the series an Epic Games Store exclusive seems to have paid off.

Quantic Dreams traded one exclusivity deal for another. Customers can link their Humble Store accounts to the Epic Games store for direct purchasing.

"Our goal is not to build another walled garden", Epic Games Store Head Steve Allison said on stage.

Epic also announced that Ubisoft will place several titles in the Epic Store.

This sweep-up comes after Epic boss Tim Sweeney said exclusives are "pro-competitive" compared to the walled garden Microsoft tried to create with its Universal Windows Platform.
