Alongside the numerous other games jumping on the Epic Games Store bandwagon-including Borderlands 3, Metro Exodus, The Outer Worlds, and more-indie studio thatgamecompany is following suit. The official Epic Games Twitter account announced that the California-based studio’s Grammy-nominated title, Journey, will arrive on PC via the Epic Games Store.
According to the tweet, below, Journey is headed to the platform sometime in the near future. There is no confirmation on an exact release date as of yet. However, Journey is currently available for pre-purchase through the Epic Games Store for $15 USD or $5 USD via the ongoing Epic Games sale.
The Epic Games Store has been on a buying spree as of late, picking up game after game in a bid to compete against Valve’s Steam since its December 2018 debut. CEO Tim Sweeney said the Epic Store will alter its exclusivity policy if Steam changes how developers and publishers are compensated. «If Steam committed to a permanent 88% revenue share for all developers and publishers without major strings attached,» he said. «Epic would hastily organize a retreat from exclusives (while honoring our partner commitments) and consider putting our own games on Steam.»
In our Journey review, we awarded the game our coveted and rare 10/10 rating, saying, «Journey’s real rewards aren’t so pedestrian. Journey offers you comfort. It gives you companionship in a lovely but forsaken world. It gives you reason to dream even when facing loss.»
