Bethesda announced today that its official PC launcher, Bethesda.net, will cease to function this spring when a full migration to Steam takes place. The video games of the software house and its subsidiaries have always been available both on Behesda.net and on the Valve platform, but starting from May 2022, the launcher of the first will be closed. Consequently, users who use it will be asked to transfer your library and any funds added to your Steam wallet.
Bethesda explains that the migration process will be available starting in April and that the Bethesda.net launcher will close its doors in May. Most video games will be transferred with their respective saves, while others will require manual movement. Bethesda will publish a brief migration guide in the coming weeks, detailing the steps to take to complete the video game migration, bailouts, and added funds to your wallet.
It is important to specify that the closure concerns only the launcher, not the “Bethesda.net” website. This means that accounts will continue to be active, and players may need to use them to access some games or content. Therefore, the migration will only be necessary for the video games since from May, it will no longer be possible to play using the Bethesda launcher.
