Another first-person shooter video game is in town. Developed by Battlestate Games, Escape from Tarkov is starting to take the industry by storm. Unfortunately, the game is only available on PC – but it comes with its own launcher. This has prompted many to begin to wonder when is Escape from Tarkov coming to Steam?
Escape from Tarkov Steam Release Date
A while back, Battlestate Games updated the official Escape from the Tarkov website with a predicted Steam release window. The website mentions that a Steam launch is on the horizon, but only for “after the game is released on our own platform. ” It’s unclear as to whether Battlestate are referring to a full-release or beta phase here.
The title launched all the way back on August 4, 2016, as a close alpha – but it’s only just beginning to get some attention. With its increasing popularity, perhaps a Steam release will be coming sooner rather than later. It can be a long process, but we’d expect an Escape from Tarkov Steam release later this year. It’s possible to occur within the next few months if the game continues to grow at this rate.
