World War Z Steam Release Date

The World War Z exclusive release on the Epic Games Store was announced in February 2019, with the developers commenting that Epic’s more generous approach to the developer’s share of profits enabled them to cut the game’s price by $5, and invest more in the game’s content. However, there has been no official word on a potential World War Z Steam release date from the developers or publishers, hinting that the Epic Games Store exclusivity is currently indefinite, with no plans to become available on Steam in the future.

Of course, the terms of the Epic Games Store exclusivity deal may involve a period during which the developers refrain from announcing an end to their exclusivity. As such, there’s still a chance that we could see a World War Z Steam release date as soon as six months from the initial release, based on the length of other Epic Games Store exclusive contracts. This certainly won’t be the last case of an Epic exclusive release, as the Epic CEO stated recently that these deals will continue to go ahead, offering greater financial support for game developers, regardless of whether their game was previously listed on Steam.
