As we all know, Apple faces off against Epic Games in court.
And according to a leaked court document, Dead Island 2 and Saints Row 5 will be exclusive to Epic Games Store.

Here is the leaked document that reveals these upcoming exclusivities:

Epic Games Store exclusives

Now while this image is really small, you can find (in red) both Saints Row 5 and Dead Island 2. As the slide suggests, these games will release exclusively on Epic’s store.

As reported last month, Epic Games lost almost $181 million & $273 million on EGS in 2019 and 2020.
Epic expects its store to turn a profit in 2023. Until then, it appears that the company will be doing its best to secure even more exclusives.

From the lawsuit discovery, turns out epic is losing around half a billion a year on the epic store, which is about one 5-6 weeks of fortnite revenue.

I can believe that both of those games would jump at getting money up front, especially DI2 after how tortured that game has been behind the scenes.
