Fans in disarray over announcement from Bethesda on Twitter

The Bethesda launcher won’t be accessible from May onwards, while, as has been mentioned before, the migration process could be used from early April. Fans appear quite taken aback by this announcement and have expressed their feelings on Twitter.

Here is a fan wondering why the games are being shifted to Steam instead of the Microsoft Store. They also ponder whether the Activision-Blizzard games will also face the same fate with BattleNet being retired later in the future.

Many fans are also thinking about what might happen to their existing games on the Bethesda Launcher. To this, Bethesda has this to say on their official site, “The migration to Steam will include your game library and Wallet – meaning you will not lose anything from your Bethesda.net account.”

 

Another hopeful Ubisoft fan hoping for a similar change so they could play Rayman on Steam.

Maybe someone needs to do a survey on how many people know about the existence of the launcher.

Fans are also congratulating Bethesda for facilitating a smooth transition process to Steam from the launcher.

Here is one fan taking a dig at Microsoft for this recent development.
