Every exclusive game available in the Epic Games Store

The Epic Games Store has managed to become a real threat to Steam in just a matter of months. Launched in 2018, the store from the studio behind money printer Fortnite has enticed developers both large and small with far friendlier revenue splits than Steam. However, many of the main exclusives have now moved their way over to Steam, and Epic has little in the way of AAA titles going into 2020.

Still, a lot of games are moving over to the platform, and with Epic’s roadmap nearing completion, it could be a serious competitor with Steam moving forward.

Here’s the full list of current and upcoming exclusives on the Epic Games Store.

Epic’s formerly announced $100 million grant program shows up a lot in the list of upcoming exclusives, many of the titles from smaller developers. The individual grants, which will range from $5,000 to $500,000, won’t require aspiring developers to give publishing rights to Epic. But much like the Epic Games Store’s friendly revenue-sharing model, it further shows the studio’s dedication to helping developers.

Rocket League is a new addition to the list. It’s still available for purchase on Steam, and those who own it on Steam will continue to receive updates. However, after Epic’s acquisition of developer Psyonix, it was announced that Rocket League would be an Epic Games Store exclusive moving forward, starting sometime in 2020.

Former exclusives

Borderlands 3 is no longer an Epic exclusive.

Epic signed multiple timed exclusivity deals when its platform first launched, and we’re just now seeing the first batch of timed exclusives move to other platforms. Here are all the games that were formerly Epic Games Store exclusives.
