Metro Exodus is an enjoyable game, but it caused a lot of ruckus when it launched on Epic Games Store as an exclusive. This caused a huge outlash as Steam users had to wait a whole year before the game launched on that storefront.

Of course, it was all about the revenue. “Epic’s generous revenue terms are a game-changer that will allow publishers to invest more into content creation, or pass on savings to the players,” said Koch Media boss Klemens Kundratitz at the time.

It seemed like a number of Metro Exodus fans waited to buy the game after the exclusive deal came to an end. Deep Silver's parent company, Embracer Group, has released its Q3 earnings report, addressing how Metro Exodus is doing on Steam. "I was happy to see it performing well, selling about 200,000 copies already, and it was surprising to see one big country in Asia, the biggest country, buying the product," said Embracer's CEO, Lars Wingefors, about the Steam launch of Metro Exodus.

That being said, the big country in Asia Wingefors is referring to is China. It's not surprising that Chinese players have been buying the game in droves, as many other developers have found that it's one of the biggest markets for Steam games.

Metro Exodus has been out for just over a week and has made around $10 million, proving that the game is doing really well and will keep expanding as it progresses.
