One pointless launcher down, dozens more to go. Bethesda has confirmed that it will start waving goodbye to its launcher on April 27, 2022, the date on which users can begin migrating their content over to Valve’s vastly superior Steam platform. Bethesda originally revealed that it would be sunsetting its Launcher in February, clarifying in the initial version of its announcement post that users would be able to transfer not only their game libraries, but wallet, game progression, saves, and in-game virtual currency (e.g., Fallout 76 Atoms, Rage Tokens, Wolfenstein: Youngblood Gold) as well. A FAQ that should clear up any questions that users may have regarding the transition process can be found on Bethesda’s updated post, which is linked below. Users will no longer be able to access the Launcher starting May 11.


We’re saying goodbye to the 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 launcher then your work is done here. Thanks for reading! If you do have games through the launcher, don’t worry. Starting on April 27 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 library to your Steam account. The migration to Steam will include your game library and Wallet – meaning you will not lose anything from your 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 login to sign in to play. Your account will not be lost and will still be accessible on our website and in-game, and we will continue supporting all accounts with our future titles.
