The rise of proprietary game launchers seems to be heading to no direction, but there’s at least one company that appears to be keeping on to track. We’re talking of Bethesda who recently announced that its new games will be available via Steam, it include Doom Eternal, Rage 2, Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot and Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
While working on rolling out that, it said it will bring Fallout 76 to Steam later this year. While that won’t help the shared-world RPG fare, it will ensure that gamers can start complaining about the game that much sooner.
Bethesda didn’t mention in its announcement if the new release will be only for Steam, but we wouldn’t expect these titles to come to the Epic Games Store or other portals regardless of the fact that they weren’t mention.
We’re also not sure Bethesda is taking side in the on-going battle between Steam and Epic’s store. This is more of the developer’s choice to shake the comparisons. Meanwhile, we think you’ll most likely have to run at least two launchers to cover the bulk of major new stuffs coming from the game developers.
