Epic Games store exclusive Metro Exodus PC is available to buy on the Microsoft Store


Here's an odd one: the PC version of Metro Exodus is available to buy on the Microsoft Store - despite apparently being an Epic Games store exclusive.

Metro Exodus is available to buy to own, or to download as part of the Xbox Game Pass for PC, which launched today.

When publisher Deep Silver announced Metro Exodus would launch as an Epic Games store exclusive - much to the anger of the Steam community - it stated it would come to other platforms a year later, in February 2020.

But here we are, four months later, and Metro Exodus is on the Microsoft Store.


Deep Silver declined to comment when quizzed by Eurogamer, but I suspect more will be revealed during Microsoft's E3 2019 press conference, given all the Xbox Game Pass developments today.

That kicks off at 9pm tonight. Why not watch along with us?
