It originally launched as an Epic Games Store exclusive; these exclusivity contracts usually last for one year. However, the one-year mark passed back in March and yet we so no release; the developers joked that it would be launching on Steam on its second birthday in 2021. Thankfully, Coffee Stain Studios has since announced the Satisfactory Steam release date as June 8, 2020.
