You ought to be less of a self-righteous fop, then. People are angry, and most of them will throw "morality" out the window. Seeing that Epic is covering any lost gains, and seeing how Phoenix Point devs even admitted that they no longer need money from customers thanks to this deal, what's the harm? Funny how Steam helped to reduce piracy, because it introduced a lot of convenience to the consumer (all other stores simply followed a set precedent - except for GOG and its unique DRM&ownership perks), and now Epic will help to re-introduce it to the market. As was stated, a lot of people simply won't be forced to use another launcher / account, no matter how free of charge it may be. It's also funny to see that so far, none of these new developers, who are so struggling for cash, simply launched on all available stores (those that actually allow 3rd party games). Back to PP, it was supposed to come out on Steam&GOG, but now its exclusive to only one store. Why not simply add Epic to the other two? Because Epic doesn't want that, that's why, and it simply uses money to out-buy the competition.
