Number of Games Released on Steam Could Top 5,000 in 2017


PC Gamer has the story.

Quote:
It's no wonder your Steam backlog keeps growing: the platform is releasing more games than ever before. According to analyst Daniel Ahmad, of Niko Partners, the number of games released on the platform so far this year has already surpassed the total for the whole of 2015.

Around 1,300 games have popped up since June's launch of Steam Direct, the replacement for Steam Greenlight that lets developers publish on Steam without passing through an approval process. If that pace carries on then the number of games released this year could top 5,000 for the first time.

That would mean there were more games released this year on Steam than in the eight years between 2006 and 2014. Pretty staggering.

Not sure. It could be more than three! Let me know if you see any that I'm missing.

I think you're going to have to test and review at least a thousand of this year's releases. Earn that account, ha!

I want Half Life 3? Left for Dead 3?

I don't want a Steam machine. They were priced stupidly high for what they were.

Hrm. You will feel extremely liberated whenever Gabe declares he has earned enough money and closes down Steam.

I'm guessing it's a media account; they get access to essentially everything in the Steam library.

I don't think Steam should be just letting anything onto their platform. Its going to cheapen the shit out of it. Even now, it seems like its a mess.

Nintendo could teach gaben a thing or two about how to maintain a respectable platform and not just flood the market with endless shit.

Numerous cheap, bad games + no good steam sales anymore = Ugh...I really think Steam is in some trouble over the long haul. A new startup focused on guality and a pleasant UI and a moderated miiverse type environment could really do good.
