Todd Harris Explains Why Smite Is Now On Steam
Smite released on Steam today. We were surprised when we found out, too. After all, Todd Harris, Co-founder & COO of Hi-Rez Studios, had previously said that Smite would never be seen on PC's largest digital distribution platform. This was attributed to the lack of sufficient tools on Steam related to the discovery of games in a previous interview. Now, however, he seems to have changed his tune. In a press release that went out today, he is quoted as saying "The time is right for Smite on Steam. The platform has evolved to include more quality free-to-play titles and, most importantly, better ways for users to discover them."
It seems, then, that the explanation given in that interview several years ago was exactly why Smite wasn't on Steam. Who would have thought it was that simple?
