Valve has revealed that it has no short-term plans to add game-streaming to Steam. Jason Holtman, Valve business development director revealed this at an industry conference Develop.
“Though “those [technologies] are really interesting to us, they’re not in our short-term plans,” he said, as reported by Gamespot.
Team Fortress 2 designer Robin Walker added: “We love cloud gaming and we think we do it already… you can think of it as just a way of using a back-end structure [for gaming].”
He mentioned that he places customer experience ahead of anything else.
“We’re not so excited by distribution. We’re excited by a change in customer experience… the exciting thing about Steam is that we can deliver new experiences, iterate on our games much faster.”
