Is Minecraft on Steam?

Until this day, Minecraft is not yet on Steam for many reasons. However, there are other kinds of Minecraft available on Steam which we will discover in this article. We're also going to answer the question that plagues most gamers: Why isn't Minecraft on Steam yet?

What are the reasons preventing Minecraft from being on Steam?

Today, Steam is a reference and essential video game platform. Gamers buy more than games on Steam. For small video game publishers, being present on a platform such as Steam is a very big challenge, it is a matter of life and death. Indeed, the number of sales of a game has exploded significantly by being on such large platforms.

Minecraft was originally a small indie game. It should have gained visibility through Steam. Notch, the video game publisher did not fail to issue its opinion on Steam. According to him, Steam is a platform that offers practical services. Moreover, he even confessed, that he spent a lot of money on this platform. It offers a functionality allowing the user to save his bank details to facilitate the purchase of games. However, Steam's offline mode is not very operational. Then, highlighting DLC games that we do not have is annoying. According to Notch, Steam represents a real limit for game publishers. The terms of use of the platform do not allow them to do everything. As an example, it is not possible to gift capes on Steam. It is also not feasible to create a shop to sell Maps on the official Minecraft website in a satisfactory way. This feature will split the Minecraft community into two. Notch tried to find a solution by negotiating with Valve, however, there was no compromise. This is why Minecraft has never been on Steam. Notch and Mojang both wanted to maintain total freedom in their game. This freedom is not possible on Steam.
