An interesting interview with Relic's Jeff Lydell on why they used GFWL + Steam in the first set of DoW2 games and why they have now dropped GWFL:
â€œThe biggest reason was making people log in to two different services to play the game was never something we were happy with, but that started with Live. At the time when we were making the decision of which online service to use Steamworks wasnâ€™t announced, and then when they did announce, they didnâ€™t include the type of network components that we needed, and we would have had to build a whole lot more, whereas Live had that out of the box.â€
