I really wonder if there is chance that S6 and ideally whole Settlers series appear on STEAM.

I know some of You may dislike Valve or STEAM in general but look on it from biz side

There are like 13+ millions users on STEAM and that's huge market (even if 1% buys the game You get more sales than in some countries http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
it's easy to adopt (recompile) game for distribution on STEAM
it's addition to retail distribution (no chance it hurts retail sales)
you can publish Your game at exact hour You define (plus allow people preload encrypted data content prior game release so they may play from hour 0)

as one of happy STEAM customers i plea for this way of distribution to appear as 'addition' to retail S6 release

thanks for considering this ...

I couldn't agree more!!

Ubi to do a deal with Valve asap to get S6 released on Steam please. They already have top notch community and server locating facilities that bluebyte tried to do with S4 and failed horribly with a buggy mess.

Get this thing on Steam please! Profits would skyrocket and we would all get to play multiplayer the way it was intended.

Releasing on Direct2Drive.com would be good too!
