Dark Souls was expected to transition from Games for Windows Live to Steam this month, but it appears the title will miss its originally expected migration timeframe.
According to Bandai Namco, the company is “working hard to finalize the process to move your Dark Souls: Prepare to Die saves and achievements to Steam. We need to conduct additional testing and we are now hoping to begin this process in December." They also follow up their statement by saying they’ll have more information regarding the game’s migration to Steamworks “in the coming weeks.”
Today’s news is hot on the heels of yesterday’s announcement that Dark Souls II would be making its way to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Considering how much work was probably put into developing a current-gen version of Dark Souls II, then I could see why Dark Souls’ migration from Games for Windows Live to Steam would hit a snag, especially when it was originally released back in 2012.
