Resident Evil 5, Dead Rising 2 and Off the Record Coming to Steamworks Next Year

By   /   Sep 8, 2014

Capcom has today announced that it will be transitioning some of its PC titles over from Microsoft’s Games for Windows Live service to Valve’s Steamworks.

The titles in question are Resident Evil 5, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

In its announcement the developer praised the Steam-based solution, saying that the move “will allow more fans across the world to enjoy these games.”

This is not the first time for Capcom to be bringing their titles over to Steamworks.

Following the announcement of Games for Windows Live’s demise last year, Capcom moved Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition over to Steamworks earlier this year. Ultra Street Fighter IV, the latest installment in the fighting franchise, launched on PC later with Steamworks as well.

There though are still titles published by the company that rely on Games for Windows Live technology. These include titles like Street Fighter X Tekken, Lost Planet 2 and others. Capcom could be planning to move them over as well with time.

In a more recent announcement earlier this year, Microsoft clarified that it plans to continue to support GFWL, which sounds like a broken record for many since the technology for horrendous to begin with.

While an exact date wasn’t mentioned, the transition for all three titles is expected to take place sometime in early 2015.
