Bethesda Hasn't Decided Whether or Not Doom Eternal will Avoid Steam

Speaking with IGN at QuakeCon 2018, Bethesda’s Pete Hines said that Fallout 76 not coming to Steam at launch doesn’t mean the publisher will never release a game there again.

“We did not announce ‘all future Bethesda games will not be on Steam,’” Hines explained. “That is not what we said. We said ‘this game will be available exclusively on’”
When asked whether Doom Eternal would be skipping Steam as well, Hines said they don’t know yet. “We haven’t decided on anything else, this is specific to Fallout 76 given the kind of game it is -- it’s an online, ongoing game,” he continued. “[Doom Eternal] may or may not, but it hasn’t been decided on anything else yet.”

The story is too old to be commented.

Bethesda Hasn't Decided Whether or Not Doom Eternal Will be on Steam... If it doesn't, it will be interesting to see how many people cave in despite complaining about... I will play it... On my "terms"... Not Bethesda's.

Once all the major companies quit using Steam it's gonna be funny to see Steam with an endless sea of garbage games and no A-AAA games available. Maybe Half Life 3 will finally get made, exclusive to Steam, in a desperate attempt to save it.

Bethesda hasn't decided to pull their heads out of their asses yet either. They make a bit of profit and suddenly they act like EA.

They've always act shoddy... the first time i noticed was regarding Prey 2 back in 2011 with the leaked emails and how they treated Human Head studios.

Release it DRM free. Who am I kidding.

Translation: We need to see the sales of Fallout 76 to gauge how we do without Steam.
