Microsoft recently announced that Quantum Break is coming to Steam on September 14th, and Xbox marketing boss, Aaron Greenberg, talked about the possibility of launching more PC titles on Steam. Greenberg explained that Microsoft has always had a presence on Steam with titles such as Age of Empires and Alan Wake, and the reason they’re releasing Quantum Break on Steam is to reach more fans and make the game more successful. However, he went on to say that Microsoft will only be launching games on Steam in the future “where they make sense,” so it doesn’t look like they plan on making all their games available on the store.
“Well, from a first party standpoint, over the years, we’ve always had titles in the Steam store, from Age of Empires, to Alan Wake, to even more recently we had titles like Ori and State of Decay. We have and we’ll continue to look where it makes sense to bring our titles to Steam. We’re excited to have brought Quantum Break there, we know there are fans of the Steam store, and customers there that we can reach, that will enable the title to have even more success.
“So we’ll continue to look to support bringing our titles to Steam when and where it’ll make sense.” — Aaron Greenberg
