    The new upcoming Fallout game isn’t going to launch on Steam, and will be available through bethesda.net only. The game’s page only sports a generic “PC GAME” logo. A Bethesda rep stated this in an email:
    This is going to make many people unhappy, as this would involve them downloading another launcher just to play one game.

    Oh, look. Another reason multiple store platforms are a bad idea. I know some of you are okay with having a thousand options to buy things, and it may make business sense in some sick, sadistic way.. but it's splitting the userbase... and not even in a good way.. and it's clutter on the PC. Oh well.

    Stay classy Bethesda! Can't wait for the creation club to be implemented in this.

    Same thing is happening with streaming services. Probably the same thing that's going to happen to cloud gaming.

    While i understand why companies doesnt like to give Valve lots of money, for the consumer it gets pretty annoying having 48493 diffrent launchers for just a game.

    1-0 Consoles/Pc in this case.
