Epic has taken the Steam vs Epic debate to a whole new level by buying one of the biggest game studios that are responsible for the immensely popular game, Rocket League.

Psyonix, the studio behind Rocket League, has announced that it will be becoming a part of the ever growing list of Epic Games Store. The studio will be acquired by Epic for an undisclosed amount. Epic was already going all-in and taking the fight to Steam by coming with exclusives and timed exclusives that were hurting Steam’s revenue streams considerably and now a game that has already been on Steam for years will be leaving to join the Epic Games Store some time later this year. Although this has not been announced but sources have told The Verge that Rocket League will be leaving Steam to become an Epic Games exclusive.
