Epic are trying to force Steam out of business.

That's what buying up exclusives has been - cutting off revenue from Valve. Here, they're retroactively doing the same thing. It's an aggressive business plan, but playing out exactly as I predicted.  https://www.theverge.com/platform/amp/2019/5/1/18525842/epic-games-psyonix-acquisition-rocket-league-fortnite-unreal-deal?__twitter_impression=true 

Previous thread about this:

What happens if Valve goes out of business and Steam shuts down? What happens to all the games you've bought over the years? 'cos that's what the Epic/Tencent endgame is. Because once Steam is gone, they're the only business in town! The new monopoly. Except worse.
