Despite fury from some consumers, developers continue to sign exclusivity deals for the Epic Games Store, with a new swathe announced at GDC.

Key among those newly revealed exclusives are Remedy Entertainment’s Control and Assassin’s Creed creator Patrice Désilets’s prehistoric project Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey.

Meanwhile, much discussion has centred on the unexpected revelation that Quantic Dream is bringing Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, and Detroit: Become Human to PC via Epic’s distribution platform.

Further new games include the free-to-play action RPG Dauntless, the factory-building sim Satisfactory, and The Sinking City.

While Obsidian’s new RPG The Outer Worlds will also land on the store, it will also be available via the Windows Store.

This fresh slate of reveals comes little more than a week after Julian Gollop revealed his new XCOM-alike Phoenix Point will be exclusive to the new storefront for a year.

As with other games set to arrive on Epic Games Store, the deals for many of these new releases seems to last for at least a year, with the Steam pages of Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, The Sinking City and The Outer Worlds, at least, mentioning specifically the delay.

Is the Epic Games Store becoming more likely to tempt you, or do you regard such deals as a predatory practice? Let us know in the comments below or in our community Discord server.
