New Revenue Share Tiers for Games on Steam Revealed

Steam Has Reached a New Milestone

The folks over at Valve / Steam has announced a new set of updates that include everything from new revenue share tiers to updates to the Steam Distribution agreement.

Moving forward, Steam has introduced new revenue share tiers for titles that hit certain revenue levels. Games that make over USD $10 million on Steam, the revenue shares for that game will adjust to 75%/25% on earnings past the USD $10 million mark. At USD $50 million, the revenue shares change to 80%/20% on earnings past the USD $50 million mark.

This will only be applied to games released after 1st October 2018. It is noted that revenue includes everything from game packages and DLC, to in-game sales and Community Marketplace game fees.

Steam is also making a change to the confidentiality provisions to make it clear that partners can share sales data about their game as they see fit.

Some other smaller changes being introduced as well are:

  • Safety warranties prompted by VR
  • Language to address how customer data is treated under the 2018 European data rules (GDPR)

While this might seem like a minor change to some, it will seem big for those who develop these games as it means that there will be more money in their pockets, and that is awesome.

Pokdepinion: Well, more money for developers mean better chances for developers to thrive in the industry…assuming no shady business is going on of course. Well, it’s a good move by Steam and it will certainly encourage the developers around.
