Microsoft Bringing Xbox Games To Steam, Says Customers Should Have A Choice Of Where To Buy



Microsoft has injected a little bit of spice to the one-sided arms race between Epic and Valve, pledging to release its Xbox Games Studios titles on Steam.

In stating players should have a choice of storefronts, Microsoft is going back on its decision to wall its titles within its own woeful storefront. This is part of a broader effort on Microsoft’s part to share its software with more platforms.

Between the Game Pass, its support of cross-platform play, and a budding relationship with Nintendo, I gotta say Microsoft is doing some decent work lately.
