Phoenix Point, X-COM creator Julian Gollop’s spiritual successor to the classic tactics franchise, will be releasing on PC via the Epic Games Store. It will be a timed exclusive for one year, as revealed in a new update video. This announcement comes despite the game’s crowd-funding campaign specifying releases for Steam and GOG.

In the video, Gollop noted that fans who have “the expectation of playing it on a specific platform” would not be happy with the decision. As a result, developer Snapshot Games is willing to offer a full refund. “I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you,” says Gollop. However, the deal for timed exclusivity ensures that the developer can “update and expand Phoenix Point for years to come.”

If you backed the game early or pre-ordered it before today’s announcement, then all DLC released within the first year will be provided for free. The scale of the DLC is currently unknown though. Gollop previously confirmed that a new version of the game would be out this month for backers containing a “large amount” of new content, but no new updates have been provided on that front.

Phoenix Point is still slated to release in September for Xbox One and PC. Stay tuned for more information on it in the coming months.
