Mobius’ crowdfunded space exploration game Outer Wilds is the latest title to have been snapped up by Epic for an exclusivity period with the Epic Games Store.

In an update (thanks, ResetEra) to backers and investors who supported the game via Fig, the statement said that the team “welcomed helpful partnerships with Annapurna Interactive, XBox, and Epic” in order to “keep our small studio running long enough to ship the game at the level of quality that it is today”.

Initially, the developer expected the game to be ready for Q2 2016 and had been “planning” to release the game on Mac, Linux and PC via Steam.
