Bethesda announced today that he plans to close its Official Bethesda.net Launchermoving all on Steam through an absolutely painless migration for users, who will find all their possessions within the Valve platform.
In fact, this is news that has been very positively received by a large number of users: the Bethesda.net launcher has never enjoyed great esteem among PC users, due to the general slowness of downloads and content management and above all for the fact that it represents yet another piece of software that must be kept open in order to access some specific games.
Even more positive is the decision to move all content and elements of the Bethesda.net Launcher account directly to Steam through one migration which should happen automatically and without loss of possessions. This means that, with the launcher closed, users will still find all the games owned on Bethesda.net within their Steam library, along with any DLC and additional content purchased and also the funds remaining in the portfoliowhich should be transferred directly to the Steam one.
Bethesda will release more information in the coming weeks, but there is already an official page that explains broadly how the procedure will take place: starting from April, users will be able to start carrying out the migration process, through more detailed instructions that will arrive at beginning of the month. Meanwhile, you can find official FAQs at this address.
Of course, this means that even the next upcoming games like Starfield, as well as future ones like The Elder Scrolls VI will not have to do with the Bethesda.net launcher, but will go directly to Steam and Game Pass.
