Valve Steam Direct Fee Will Be Just $100 Per Game
At first the fee was said to be between $200 and $5000, in order to prevent Steam from being flooded with poorly made games. But eventually the cost is $100. Compared with Steam Greenlight, which charges $100 for each developer but doesn’t limit how many games a developer can upload, Steam Direct lifts the bar a little bit higher. But still it’s a very inviting price considering that you can skip the Greenlight phase and directly launch your game in the market.
It’s not difficult to foresee a huge spike in Steam store after Steam Direct launches. Are you worried that about the quality of the games? Do you think Valve can handle the balance of quantity and quality?
