Steam, a few months ago, before removing the game from it's library, gave out free copies of Metro 2033 to be downloaded. For around 24hrs IIRC. That was pretty decent of them. I have zero complaints regarding Steam, any issues I had they have always done me right.
From what I'm reading, Epic are trying to build themselves up to be a digital distribution platform competitor to Steam.
Could it be that, with the mountains of cash they have to blow, Epic is paying developers to make their titles exclusive to the Epic Store? That would be a good way to gain momentum. No sure about the legal aspects of that, I'm not a lawyer.
