Phil Spencer has confirmed that Microsoft plans to release some of their games on Steam, saying that they will co-operate in some areas and compete in others. 

This means that we will be seeing some Microsoft games on Steam but at this time, we do not know which games series' will remain as a Microsoft Windows 10 Store exclusive.  

 

I look at Steam today, it’s on an incredible growth trajectory. It’s a massive force in gaming; a positive force. I think it will be bigger a year from now than it is today. And five years later it will still be bigger again. I look at Valve as an important [independent software vendor] for us on Windows. They are a critical part of gaming’s success on Windows.

I don’t think Valve’s hurt by not having our first-party games in their store right now. They’re doing incredible well. We will ship games on Steam again.

Regarding the reception of Windows Store exclusive games, Phil Spencer has admitted that the Microsoft has had a lot of lessons to learn, hopefully meaning that they will work harder to release more stable PC versions in the future. 

 

      There’s going to be areas where we cooperate and there’s going to be areas where we compete. The end result is better for gamers.

They all haven’t gone swimmingly. Some of them have gone well. Forza 6 Apex did well. Quantum Break wasn’t our best PC release. Killer Instinct did well on PC. Gears of War Ultimate Edition was OK–we definitely learned there.

 

Hopefully, we will be seeing a lot of Microsoft made games make it onto Steam n the future, as more consumer choice will always be a good thing.

This is probably because no-one uses the store and the 2 'big' games released on it have been pretty much a flop because no-one really knows they exist nor care...

Just put it on Steam.. there's a reason it's the go-toQuote
