Age of Empires: Definitive Edition Might Make its Way to Steam Someday

Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, which was released yesterday, is currently a Windows 10 exclusive. Essentially, what that means is that players can only get the game through the dreaded Windows Store. Microsoft previously blamed Valve for not wanting Age of Empires: Definitive Edition on their Steam platform, but then stated that the move was possible if the platforms pledge their unconditional support for Windows 10. In a recent interview with PC Games Network, Adam Isgreen suggested that Age of Empires: Definitive Edition could possibly arrive on Steam in a near future. As a creative director, Adam has little control over game distribution, however, he fully recognizes that some users suffer from annoying issues with the Windows 10 Store.

So, basically, nobody's going to get it.

Yeah, it's called remove the DRM from the game and click "add to steam library". You can do that now.

This is just Quantum Break all over again - release game on WS, sales are crap, complain to MS, MS agrees to release the game on other platforms, queue Steam release.

But will it work on Windows 7 if it does indeed come on Steam in the future?
