There is no plan to put it on Steam in the near future. I would expect it to be on Steam at some point, maybe later next year, maybe the year after that or the year after that. It took 4 1/2 years for WitE to get onto Steam after release, and it's been 2 years since WitW was released. If it ever comes out on Steam, my understanding is that Matrix releases Steam keys to all previous purchasers, so you'll get the benefit of Steam in the future. The bottom line is we get more revenue per sale on Matrix than on Steam, so we prefer to keep getting the higher per unit price as long as we can. The benefit of Steam is it reaches some new customers that we wouldn't otherwise get, so it's a balancing act.
All understanding comes after the fact.
