Outer Wilds Nearing the Finish Line
We’re nearing the finish line for Outer Wilds and wanted to share an update of the game.
Outer Wilds will first be released on XBox One and on PC via the Epic Games Store, with additional platforms coming later. Rest assured that we read all of your comments and our goal is to bring the game to your preferred platform as quickly as possible. We will keep you up to date with the latest info here.
Throughout the development of the game, we’ve welcomed helpful partnerships with Annapurna Interactive, XBox, and Epic to support us and keep our small studio running long enough to ship the game at the level of quality that it is today. Each of these partnerships has enabled us to make the game better and more accessible for everyone who will play it.
We greatly appreciate the support that you have given us over the years, even when we weren’t able to share all of the details going on behind the scenes. We’ll share an update on the release date soon. We thank you for sticking with us, and we look forward to seeing you play Outer Wilds!

waiting for this for 6 years, epic games store, fuck yourself shill, pirating
5/10/2019 03:23:51 pm
Very mature. How much does it cost you to download a free game client again?
5/10/2019 04:27:48 pm
its not the free client thats the problem. its the bad practices and the lying to backers about it being available on steam that i have issues with
5/10/2019 05:30:21 pm
Well, i'd have to install Microsofts malware in order to install Epics malware....no thank you, i'd rather have the plattform i backed for...
5/12/2019 01:40:06 pm
The epic games account I've never used is the only account I've ever had with security issues. I've found out that my account info was part of two separate mass leaks of sensitive account data. That's reason enough for me to never buy a game on it.
5/13/2019 03:16:43 pm
@Wyatt cooper, I guess you're the type of person who thinks that security issues only happen if you notice them. Steam has a history of hacks and problems... if it upsets you so much use a burner card for the purchase. Acting like a spoiled brat accomplishes nothing but WILL get more devs leaving the trash heap of steam.

@Bueno "to release Outer Wilds on PC, Mac, and Linux through Steam next year." Strongly implies a simultanious release. And no, i won't use Wine to run an "shop" whose businesspractices i despise to run a game that was announced for the platform i use.

>Epic games store first
5/10/2019 03:23:00 pm
It makes total sense for smaller studios to make these kind of deals. While most of my games are on Steam, downloading a second free client is fine, and having a second big player in the PC market is a good thing. Everyone just likes to jump on the Epic Store hating bandwagon. The Epic Store is lacking some features, but it's getting there. It's not like Steam is free-and-clear of problems. Talk about first world problem.
5/10/2019 03:47:44 pm
1. EGS is definitely not a good place to be typing your personal data.
5/13/2019 02:47:25 pm
The game will be on steam, what is your big problem with a little competition? AND YES! Steam pulled these exact same antics when it first came out, paying for steam exclusives to get people to use steam instead of buying a disc.
5/14/2019 04:52:10 am
That's a huge lie. Valve NEVER paid 3rd party devs or publishers for exclusivity.
5/10/2019 03:42:12 pm
Your website still lists Steam...
3/24/2020 03:04:30 am
The good news is, everything is already covered in this article. So, it is about time that one start doing everything presented here.
5/10/2019 03:59:18 pm
Ugh, not another one.
5/10/2019 06:23:26 pm
This is deeply disappointing.
5/10/2019 06:32:31 pm
5/10/2019 08:19:11 pm
Man I never comment on anything but I gotta say people are being rude here. You guys are making a beautiful game and I can't imagine what possesses these guys to hate indie devs so much. Get yo money and I cannot wait to buy this game no matter how it's published.
5/11/2019 02:24:32 am
I am rude for complaining that i'm treated as a second- or even thrid-class citizen and won't be able to play the game i backed for and waited through the 3 year delay when it's finally released but instead have to wait for god knows how long?! If there ever will be a Linux-Release that is...
5/13/2019 02:54:35 pm
You kids aren't being treated like second class citizens... you're treating DEVELOPERS like 3rd world illegals. The problem with people like you is that you only care about yourself and what you expect, never mind how steam ROBS the developer blind most of the time.
5/13/2019 03:51:03 pm
They should've thought about that beforehand then? You can't "sell" things and then change them up years later...
5/11/2019 01:03:10 am
These exclusivity deals are bad enough in the first place, but doing this with a crowdfunded game is the absolute worst. We have backed your game almost four years ago, waited patiently ever since, and get a huge middle finger in the end.
5/13/2019 03:02:47 pm
People need to learn how crowd funding works. You paid for 10% of what it would cost to make the game at best; the reality is that crowd funding is a way of getting investors interested in funding a game and pays very little of the actual costs.
5/14/2019 01:37:20 pm
That's not how every crowdfunding campaign works...yes, there were some (like Takedown) who basically collected money to create a prototype to pitch to investors/publishers, but they themselves said that in their Kickstarter pitch. Because it's an inherently risky proposition, I never backed those campaigns. After the end of their Fig campaign, Mobius said they were fully funded... i guess that was just the first lie.
5/14/2019 03:11:28 pm
Just because you don't see what is going on behind the scenes doesn't mean that it isn't. I've seen products with reasonable upfront costs that you donors scream are scams, but when a product comes with a completely unreasonable CHEAPER cost you act like you know what you're talking about
5/14/2019 08:59:47 pm
Crowdfunding isn't really investing though (well Fig partly is...), it is supporting a dev in exchange for the promised reward, based on trust.
5/11/2019 04:29:09 pm
Will it be 6 or 12 months before the steam release?
5/12/2019 10:03:59 am
How about fulfilling backer demand, like giving steam key u scums?
5/12/2019 10:47:03 am
Backers were promised something and now you’re pulling that? I’m pirating your game now and will encourage everyone else too as well.
5/12/2019 02:57:26 pm
Really disappointed of the Epic deal. At least give us backers steamkeys at release!
5/13/2019 05:18:30 am
Drink up, me hearties, yo ho!
5/13/2019 05:42:52 am
REPENT, FOR YOU HAVE SINNED
5/13/2019 05:54:03 am
I found the original demo incredibly promising and lamented the fact you resorted to crowd funding through Fig several years ago. Now here we are with you renegading on your promises to backers and making it exclusive to Epic Store
5/13/2019 03:12:35 pm
Was really looking forward to this, but now planning on doing a chargeback on my credit card to take my money away from you.
5/13/2019 03:22:03 pm
They'll have every right to sue you if you try, you received what you paid for, just because it isn't what you EXPECTED doesn't mean you didn't get the goods you paid for.
5/14/2019 03:00:24 pm
"They'll have every right to sue you if you try"
5/14/2019 03:29:25 pm
@KitKatKseniya: It doesn't matter, obviously you're not old enough to pay your bills by a response like that.
5/13/2019 10:23:29 pm
I did not back this game, but I have to say this: While I do not have an issue with using Epic game store, I have issues with the fact that your promised Linux and Mac versions are now no-shows. And don't just answer Wine or Proton, it is not a long term solution as the overhead hampers performance (plus apparently getting the game store working in Wine is spotty depending on what version of wine your distro of choice shipped with). If I were a backer, I'd be really angry too because you promised me that a native version of the game would be available on my platform of choice, and money was given on the mutual understanding that I would receive a product compatible with my chosen platform.
5/16/2019 07:02:42 pm
Short term vs long term. Short term you get paid by epic yippe thats some sweet sweet fortnight money. Long term you pissed off the majority of the people who backed and believed in this product. You think people will give you the time of day for your next project? Congratulations you played yourself.
5/16/2019 07:04:22 pm
Maybe you people should actually read what was published and see that it's a "Timed Exclusive". Basically, all the suckers who buy it on Epic Games launcher will get to be the glitchy beta testers, then it will be later released on Steam for all platforms.
5/17/2019 11:12:31 pm
I'm amused by many of the comments here, especially the ones who are more or less insulting those who are upset about this happening. Here's the thing, that apparently people don't get. People aren't mad that the game is Epic Exclusive, hell most wouldn't care if a game was announced off the bat that it was an EGS exclusive.
