Quite a number of companies have their own game launchers. For example EA has their Origin store, then Epic has their own Epic Game Store, Blizzard has its Battle.net launcher, and so it didn’t come as a surprise when Bethesda also launched their own Bethesda.net launcher.

However, it seems that the company has decided that they will be shutting their launcher down and move their games onto Steam. According to the company, “We’re saying goodbye to the Bethesda.net Launcher this year. We would like to thank you for your support and assure you that all of your games are safe.”

For gamers who purchased their games through the launcher, Bethesda notes that gamers will be able to move their games onto Steam so they won’t need to buy it again. “If you do have games through the Bethesda.net launcher, don’t worry. Starting in early April you’ll be able to migrate your games and Wallet to your Steam account. For more details on what this process will look like, read on.”

It’s an interesting choice since we figured with Microsoft acquiring the company, they would try and shift all their games to the Microsoft Store instead. However, it is possible that they realize that Steam is simply the more popular option. The migration option will be available starting this April, so keep that in mind if you do have games in the Bethesda.net launcher that you want to migrate over.
