Age of Empires: Definitive Edition will be available for sale next month. Xbox One and PC have been selected as platforms for production. Although it seems normal at first, Microsoft plans to sell AoE: Definitive Edition only on the Windows Store. At the same time, Microsoft says Valve is the reason why AoE: Definitive Edition does not come to Steam.
In this case, he was already at Killer Instinct
Steam does not support Windows Live versions of games, according to a German-based game site, Gamestar. Because of this, games, including previous games from Age of Empires, can not be adapted to Steam and are being sold on Steam, as can be understood. But there is a side producer who comes from above. Working at Killer Instinct, Iron Galaxy solved the cross-platform incident smoothly and brought the game to Steam. Subsequently, Remedy’s Windows Live-specific game Quantum Break took place in Steam six months later.
Maybe this problem is also caused by Microsoft. While publishers can seamlessly adapt to Steam, Microsoft itself blames Valve. If we can see that previous games have been added to Steam, it’s likely that Age of Empires: Definitive Edition will also be on Steam.
