Darkest Dungeon 2 Steam Availability Explained
Last year in October, Red Hook Studios official confirmed that Darkest Dungeon 2 would be an Epic Games exclusive. So, unfortunately, the game isn’t available on Steam for now, which definitely comes as bad news for players who don’t wish to play Early Access on Epic. However, the good thing is that title’s exclusivity isn’t a permanent thing.
In an interview with PC Gamer, the developers confirmed that the Epic Games store exclusivity would end when the game is out of Early Access. The studio stated that the deal with Epic is only temporary, and it allows them to give players a great game; but eventually, they want Darkest Dungeon 2 in everybody’s hands. “It’s early access exclusive, but it’s not permanently exclusive. So we want to get the game in everybody’s hands eventually. That’s definitely our plan,” said Tyler Sigman, design director, to PC Gamer.
So, we’ll definitely see the Darkest Dungeon 2 arriving on Steam when it hits 1.0. That being said, there’s no word from the developers regarding the title’s full release date. So, if you wish to try out the sequel in Early Access, you have no choice but to buy it on the Epic Games store.
