Bethesda has officially confirmed that many of its anticipated future titles will be available on Steam.
In a new tweet, out of the blue, Bethesda revealed that Rage 2, Doom Eternal, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, and Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot will all be available on Steam.
The tweet didn’t specifically say if this means at launch or at a later date, though that is believed to be the case. When asked, Bethesda wouldn’t say one way or another, but it did point out that Rage 2 already has a Steam page where you can pre-order it. Of course, it shows the same May 14 release date.
Fallout 76, which launched exclusively on Bethesda’s own launcher, will too make its way to Steam “later this year.”
All games will also, obviously, be available on Bethesda’s store. Interestingly, Bethesda also clarified in an email that all physical PC copies will include a Bethesda.net key, not a Steam key.
We’re pleased to announce that RAGE 2, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot, and DOOM Eternal will be released on Steam as well as https://t.co/p0BARqmTBp. We will also be bringing Fallout 76 to Steam later this year.

It’s interesting that Bethesda felt the need to issue this tweet now. Many assumed keeping Fallout 76 off Steam was the start of things to come. And, with the Epic Games Store’s increasing clout in the PC space, fans were likely badgering Bethesda for a definitive answer.
Rage 2 already has a May 14 release date, but we’re hoping Bethesda will reveal launch dates for Doom Eternal, and the Wolfenstein off-shoots at its E3 showcase this year.
