Microsoft is bringing more games to Steam

Looks like even Microsoft has had enough of EPICS bullshit

A NEW PLAYER HAS ENTERED THE GAME


"Our intent is to make our Xbox Game Studios PC games available in multiple stores, including our own Microsoft Store on Windows, at their launch.  We believe you should have choice in where you buy your PC games," writes Xbox head Phil Spencer.

In the past, Microsoft's support of Steam has been spotty. Most of its new games have remained exclusive to the Microsoft Store, which also means they're only available as Universal Windows Apps, a container used on modern Windows with a number of drawbacks for games. UWAs are not nearly as open to modding, overlays, or tools like ReShade, and have been largely unpopular with PC gamers who care about those features.



Steam is seemingly the first step along the road to a multi-store rollout for Microsoft. "We know millions of PC gamers trust Steam as a great source to buy PC games and we’ve heard the feedback that PC gamers would like choice. We also know that there are other stores on PC, and we are working to enable more choice in which store you can find our Xbox Game Studios titles in the future," Spencer wrote. A future where Microsoft's games end up on GOG or the Epic Games Store doesn't seem unlikely, then.

    I belive its more like they bite the bullet to see if they games will survive longer with mods and such, plus there is still a lot of people who are not that willing to use win 10 so they shop is not used, not considerating the ones who hate the windows store

    Note the statement made says "our intent".

    Their primary intent being to see their XBox games on PC ideally via the Microsoft Store on Windows.

    And if they achieve their goal of a common PC and console platform then PC devs will be able to sell their games to XBox players .... via the MS Store.

    Maybe Microsoft has had enough of Steams's bullshit - or maybe they are just doing this for the money.

    Interesting post, nothing about having enough of Epics bullshit though. On the contrary if your own quote is to be believed.....

    But there are many. You can play them entirely solo, and even offline. Also, you are wrong by default.
