Ever since Satisfactory first came out on the Epic Games Store, players have asked the age-old question: “Steam when?”
But now Coffee Stain Studios have officially set a date for the Satisfactory Steam release. Be sure to add the game to your Steam wishlist so you don’t miss it!
For those of you who don’t want to watch the video, we’ll spoil the date here too. Satisfactory comes out on Steam on June 8th, 2020. That is less than a week and a half from the time of publishing.
You may be wondering why there wasn’t a for-sure Steam release date earlier. Jace explains in the above video that especially in these days of working from home during the pandemic, nothing is for certain. And even under normal circumstances, game development is difficult and you’re bound to run into challenges that delay release.
At Satisfactory News, we’re just grateful that the Coffee Stain team is able to keep their jobs and work from home on our favorite game. They could just have easily cut their development team down and closed up shop for months, but they didn’t.
Satisfactory isn’t the only game to suffer from the global pandemic. Fortnite, one of the biggest games in the world still, had to push back its upcoming season by a week at the last minute, its second delay so far.
