More Capcom games jump ship.
As Games for Windows Live winds down, the question of what will happen to games that depended on the service for their online infrastructure looms large in many people’s mind. Today, we got at least a partial answer to that question, as Capcom confirmed that three of its more high profile PC releases- Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising: Off the Record, and Resident Evil 5- will be migrating over to Steamworks early next year to provide a framework for online play.
“With the global popularity of the Steamworks platform, we’ve seen high demand from fans to bring these highly requested titles to this platform,” Capcom said.
“Moving to Steamworks will allow more fans across the world to enjoy these games.”
If you already own the games, they will automatically be transitioned over to the new platform, so you don’t need to worry about rebuying the titles, or adding non Steam games to your library.
