forza-motorsport-6-nascar-expansionIf you’re hoping to find future games from Microsoft be available for purchase on Steam, it seems that is a possibility that Microsoft isn’t opposed to. Speaking during Giant Bomb’s E3 stream (via ArsTechnica), Xbox boss Phil Spencer said that is something that they are looking at for the future of releases.

According to Spencer, “I look at Steam today, it’s on an incredible growth trajectory. It’s a massive force in gaming; a positive force. I think it will be bigger a year from now than it is today. And five years later it will still be bigger again.” He also adds, “I don’t think Valve’s hurt by not having [Microsoft’s] first-party games in their store right now. They’re doing incredibly well.”

Spencer also says that while Steam releases are a possibility, it won’t be applicable to every Microsoft title. “There’s going to be areas where we cooperate and there’s going to be areas where we compete. The end result is better for gamers. We will ship games on Steam again.” Unfortunately Spencer did not state which titles we might be able to expect in the future.

As it stands, Steam is one of the most popular platforms when it comes to purchasing games. This is thanks to various features offered on the platform, like discounts, social aspects where users can chat with each other, as well as a marketplace where gamers can resell items.
