Sega and Creative Assembly has revealed that A Total War Saga: Troy will be a timed exclusive on the Epic Games Store when it releases on August 13, 2020. Below, we’ll let you in on the answer to “what is the A Total War Saga: Troy Steam release date?” Read on to discover when you should be able to download and play the latest Total War game on Steam.
When is the A Total War Saga: Troy Steam release date?
A Total War Saga: Troy, should release on Steam on or around August 13, 2021. Recently confirmed, the Total War Saga: Troy release date is scheduled for August 13, 2020, as a timed-exclusive on the Epic Games Store. It was confirmed that it will be exclusive on the Epic Games Store for a year. This means that it will be free to release on Steam a year later, either on or just after August 13, 2021. Time will tell, of course, if this will be the correct release date. For now, expect the game to release on Steam a year after its initial Epic Games Store release date.
Thanks to Gematsu, we know that making the game a timed Epic Games Store exclusive was a difficult decision for the development team. Creative Assembly explains that it wants “to diversify” its business and release its “games onto as many stores as possible.” Creative Assembly adds that if you’re unhappy with the game’s Epic Games Store exclusivity, “it’ll be just a year until it’s available on Steam.”
Better yet, though, is that for the first 24 hours (from its initial August 13 release date), the game will be free to keep forever. All you need to do is head on the Epic Games Store on August 13, 2020, and grab yourself a copy of the game for free (available for only 24 hours). If you’d rather wait to play it on Steam, the A Total War Saga: Troy Steam release date isn’t too far off.
