Because Epic is willing to throw incomprehensable amounts of money at devs for deals. The Pheonix Point guy more or less said he’d still be in the black if every backer for the game did a forced chargeback. Also, do any of the Japanese Developers have large Tencent investments? I know they’re only recently starting to trust Steam, they’re doing great shot right now, and don’t usually like the Chinese much.Why on earth would they think abandoning Steam is a good idea? Doesn't that cut them off from, what, 90% of everyone that shops for games online?
