Bethesda isn’t going to lock their biggest hitters of 2019 behind the Bethesda Store, but instead, they’re releasing them on Steam when they launch.
As the heated debate on how many launchers are considered acceptable and if you can trust a rather specific one, there are companies working to avoid that debate, and offer their game to as many people as they can. While Bethesda will certainly continue to offer their games through their very own launcher, the company has recently announced, that won’t be the case with their upcoming super hits, which are all expected to launch later this year.
Titles namely include RAGE 2, DOOM Eternal, Fallout 76, Wolfenstein: Youngblood and Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot. The company has not confirmed whether or not The Elder Scrolls: Elsweyr will be among those many titles. However, it does pave a surefire path to Bethesda’s ongoing sense of freedom of choice and power to the players.
With this move and their partnering up with Steam as a third-party PC destination, fans should be well aware this doesn’t indicate they won’t opt for the Epic Games Store, but doesn’t hint that they will do so as their own store is fully available right from their very own launcher, which is required for games such as The Elder Scrolls: Legends and Fallout Shelter.
With QuakeCon: 25 Years of DOOM on the way, rest assured that we might be hearing plenty more about their plans for their games, and what form of distribution we might see in the upcoming days.
