Epic Games loder has been accused of improper surveillance of Steam. It is alleged that they copy the user’s fiends list. They do this and more without even getting user permission.

The creator of the original X-COM, Julian Gollop has endured a backlash after signing a Epic Games store exclusivity deal for his next title. Gallop has promised Steam keys for backers of the crowdfunded campaign which raised $765,948 by over 10,000 backers. Like Metro Exodus, the game would be back on Steam after a year.

Much of the controversy about the Epic Games store appears to be linked to Epic’s dealings with Tencent. Tencent, which is one of the biggest game companies in the world, owns a part of Epic Games, and some people are concerned their data may end up in the Chinese government’s hands as a result.

We also accuse Epic Games for trademark violations so now this sort of crap does not surprise us at all. This also now exposes Tencent for trademark infringement.
