Forums - Gaming Discussion - Bethesda Sunsetting the Bethesda.net Launcher & Migrating to Steam

We’re saying goodbye to the Bethesda.net Launcher this year. We would like to thank you for your support and assure you that all of your games are safe. If you’re not playing PC games through the Bethesda.net launcher then your work is done here. Thanks for reading! If you do have games through the Bethesda.net launcher, don’t worry. Starting in early April you’ll be able to migrate your games and Wallet to your Steam account. For more details on what this process will look like, read on.

You have plenty of time to plan and begin migrating your Bethesda.net library to your Steam account. The migration to Steam will include your game library and Wallet – meaning you will not lose anything from your Bethesda.net account. Many games will also have their saves migrated, with a few requiring some manual transfers. For games that require it, you will still use your Bethesda.net login to sign in to play. Your Bethesda.net account will not be lost and will still be accessible on our website and in-game, and we will continue supporting all Bethesda.net accounts with our future titles.

NEXT STEPS

In early April, you will be able to initiate the migration process following detailed instructions we will have available to you then.

We expect you to have a lot of questions and encourage you to take a look at our comprehensive FAQ below. For those of you looking for questions specific to Fallout 76, in addition to the below FAQ we also have a Fallout 76-specific FAQ on Fallout.com.

I don't know a single person that actually used the Bethesda.net launcher. So really glad to see Bethesda consolidating in things that aren't needed.

Can't say the same about Battle.net. I don't think there's any chance Microsoft will shut that launcher down.



Bethesda.net won't be missed.





This is of course, great news. Hopefully MS does the same with Battle.net

Now Microsoft just needs to buy Epic and things will be truly just again.

Good riddance.



Good.

Next, hopefully Battle.net.

They should just enforce Acti releasing their games on Steam again. I don't want Battlenet network being completely dismantled, because I use it for WoW/HotS/Diablo and Starcraft. Last thing I want is to migrate all that shit over to my MS account.

I'm all for having my stuff in one spot, just not under MS.



Step right up come on in, feel the buzz in your veins, I'm like an chemical electrical right into your brain and I'm the one who killed the Radio, soon you'll all see

So pay up motherfuckers you belong to "V"

I agree. I don't mind multiple storefronts, but as long as you give players the options of where they can buy their games instead of strong-arming them to your storefront.
