Back in February, Bethesda announced plans to shut down Bethesda Launcher, an alternative to certain other popular digital game management programs. Those plans have since been explained further in an update to a blog post about sunsetting the launcher and migrating to Steam.
“If you do have games through the Bethesda.net launcher, don’t worry,” it reads. “Starting on April 27th you’ll be able to migrate your games and Wallet to your Steam account.”
Some games will have their saves transfer over automatically, while others will require manually copying them into the relevant folder. “At this time, we expect almost all save progress to be transferable automatically or manually with the exception of Wolfenstein: Youngblood, which currently is unable to transfer,” the post continues.
DLC and in-game currency will automatically transfer.
The Bethesda Launcher will remain up and running until May 11th, but even if you don’t get all your games transferred over to Steam by then, you’ll still be able to transfer them after that.
And don’t throw away your Bethesda.net login details, either. “For games that require it, you will still use your Bethesda.net login to sign in to play,” added Bethesda. “Your Bethesda.net account will not be lost and will still be accessible on our website and in-game, and we will continue supporting all Bethesda.net accounts with our future titles.”
