Bethesda Scraps Its Launcher And Returns To Steam
There are good game launchers and then there are less good ones. Steam is damn nice, but publishers seem to have felt that Valve takes too much of the revenue and has instead released its own game launchers. Among others, Ubisoft, Rockstar, Electronic Arts and Bethesda have invested in their own. Now Bethesda has realized that it was not a good idea for the consumer and has decided to close its launcher and store in April.
Since almost all Bethesda titles are already available on Steam, there will be no major changes in terms of stores. But all purchases customers have made in the Bethesda store will be available in the Steam store. Save files and such will also be sent to Valve’s store.
