Rowan Hajaj, the head of finance and corporate development at Rockstar had
the following to say of the inclusion of Rockstar Games on Steam:
We were immediately excited by the opportunity to offer our PC catalogue
via Steam because it allows us to reach out to gamers around the world in
exciting new ways. We are continually looking for ways to give back to our
fans and this collaboration will give people a chance to easily revisit some
of our greatest titles.
Before anyone points it out, I realise that Rockstar added their titles to
Direct2Drive in December and to Steam last week. We just never posted about
it as posting about the availability of titles in the past has resulted in little
or no interest from the site users. But due to the amount of emails we continue
to get informing us that they are now available through digital distribution
I thought it would be best for all involved to acknowledge it through a news
post. With that said thanks to everyone that has emailed in about it.
