Control's low sales are sad as hell...

I really want to play the game on PC, but I refuse to support the Epic store. Did they go with a full year of exclusivity to EGS?

Yeah, I was going to say that REALLY isn't saying much considering how well of a known IP Borderlands is. Then you got World War Z not TOO far under it, lmao.

Feels super low to me.
Even BL3 selling 2 Mil is quite low, for a BL game.
I read that as 2000 ! I was like holy crapcrackers that's low! Last I remember reading is that it sold 5mil total across all platforms so 2mil wouldn't be bad at all

Given they recently announced how much people had spent on the store, I think it's pretty much confirmed that they lost money on third party titles. IIRC the amount spent on third party titles was around 250 million. Epic gets a 12% cut, so they keep around 30 million. 10 million of that was spent getting exclusivity for Control, and Borderlands was almost certainly significantly more expensive than that. Add the money they shelled out for all those other exclusivity deals (everything from RDR2 to indie titles) and there's no way they'd come out ahead.
