Bethesda announced on Tuesday that they are retiring their PC game launcher in 2022. Moving forward, Steam will be the platform used to launch Bethesda titles on PC.

Players will be able to begin migrating their Bethesda game library and virtual currency to Steam in early April. Most games will transfer save data over. But, if you are playing a game that requires a bethesda.net login, you will have to manually transfer the save data to Steam.

The Bethesda PC game launcher will no longer work once May arrives, so players are advised to begin transferring games to Steam in April.

It’s unclear why the decision was made to retire the game launcher now. However, the move to do it early in the year guarantees that there will not be any difficulties for PC players once Starfield launches in November 2022.
