Sometimes games don’t always have to be about shooting other dudes or fighting horrifying creatures. Sometimes video games can be a whole lot of other things, including a world where lots of bugs are made from delicious snacks, and it won’t be long till you can get your hands on it through Steam.
That’s right, Bugsnax is coming to Steam in 2022 after some timed exclusivity on the Epic Games Store. The charming game was fairly well received at launch, but will undoubtedly find more success on Valve’s storefront. We don’t know exactly when in 2022 it will release on Steam, but it likely will be early in the year.
Additionally, Kevin Zuhn, the Creative Director at developer Young Horses, teased that they have some “meaty news and a few juicy surprises to get people talkin' bout Bugsnax again later this year,” which has sparked speculation on some DLC or even a sequel, though most likely the former.
Previously, Zuhn said in an interview that the team at Young Horses was “figuring out what exactly we want to do post-release” on Bugsnax. However, they are “definitely not done working on Bugsnax yet.”
Bugsnax has an official Steam page up already, and you can go wishlist it now if you want. The release date still says a 2022 release, and given how Epic exclusivities are usually 6-12 months and we’re 9 months since the release of Bugsnax, it will probably be within the first 6 months of 2022 that we can expect a Steam release.
