The two major game platforms will come together sooner.
If you love retro games and are always looking for a way to easily emulate your favorite games, RetroArch on Steam can make your life easier.
For those who are not used to the term RetroArch, it is a GUI for users to manipulate the Libretro API to emulate their Retro games.
In an announcement made on the official blog, by Daniel De Matteis (one of the main devs of the project), he announced that RetroArch would be arriving at Steam and will be at first on the 30th. According to him, the entry of RetroArch on Steam will help many users and projects that run the games, either via physical media or emulators, and using the cores. Libretro somehow.
At first, the Windows version will be released in the first phase and the versions of Linux and MacOS posteriorly. They chose to offer to Windows First, to test whether the project infrastructure is ready for a large demand and thus ensure that it can support the others later. Nothing more logical no no.
They also commented that there will be no difference between the versions of their site with the one available on Steam, and that at that first, will not have implementations of Steamworks SDK, but that will not rule out in the near future.
It's worth mentioning that you can install RetroArch in your district without waiting for the Steam version, there are official versions at Flatpak and Snap too.
