Steam now requires developers to set a planned release date in its backend for games to have a store page, even if the information doesn’t match that listed on the public-facing product page, which could simply say ‘coming soon’, for example.
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection – Launch Trailer | PS5
It’s likely some of these internal release dates are merely placeholders, but they may also hint at actual release dates, release targets or launch windows, although if so, some already appear to be outdated.
For example, Atomic Heart’s internal Steam release date is listed as June 22, but a trailer released for the game last month confirmed it will arrive in the last four months of the year. Steam’s frontend lists the game’s release as TBA.
Internal release dates listed for some upcoming games include (via Tech Raptor):
- Stray – April 19
- Bomb Rush Cyberfunk – May 26
- Oxenfree II: Lost Signals – June 30
- Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection – July 15
- Sonic Frontiers – September 1
- Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown – September 22
