Paradox removes Vampire: The Masquerade 2 from Epic Store during sale

The Epic Games store sale kicked off yesterday, with discounts of up to 75% and a further $10/£10 reduction on all games priced at $14.99/£13.99 or above.

The previously leaked Epic Games Mega Sale is now live on the Epic Games Store! The game's base price, however, was listed at $24.99, up from its original listing of $19.99. Shortly after that Klei Entertainment also removed Oxygen Not Included.

It's not an overt money thing here, because according to John Wick Hex developer Mike Bithell, Epic is picking up the difference and paying developers and publishers that wayward $10.

Epic have just announced the Epic Mega Sale is now on. But it provides evidence that Epic's decision to hold a snap sale on the Epic Games Store wasn't sufficiently thought through. This upcoming action RPG was reportedly available for a discounted price, but soon disappeared from the storefront.

Speaking with Kotaku, a Paradox representative said, "We are in discussion with Epic regarding the temporary removal of Vampire: the Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 from the Epic Game Store". If you've purchased Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 during the period when the discount did apply at the time of check out, Epic will honor that price.

Paradox Interactive's move to pull Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 from the Mega Sale makes eminently good sense, since the game won't be released until 2020 and is now only available to pre-order. The game will return to the store soon! It appears Paradox were unhappy with the £10 discount, even though they would still get the full price for the game, Epic were going to fund the discount themselves. We apologize for any confusion this caused and hope customers who got the deal enjoy the game.

Paradox Interactive echoed Epic in its own separate statement, but did not say exactly why the game was removed, rather than simply left at regular price. In other words, the current version of the store may not yet allow Epic to exclude games from similar promotions. "We had meant to raise the retail price of the game soon, but made the decision rashly as part of the sale-we didn't provide advance notice to our customers, despite previously stating we would do so". They will even bring Rocket League to the store as an exclusive game in the near future. You will receive your $10 refund automatically to the payment method you used in the next 7-12 days.
