Default WMMA4 Steam Release?

Will (and if so, is any date set?) WMMA4 be released on steam in any way?

Right now everyone is talking about TEW20 and you're discussing an older version of another game. I hope they are considering other platforms for their game, but honestly I don't mind this being exclusive to this "elicence" (on the premise that the support remains on a daily basis so you're not screwed if you lose your key). Most hardcore fans will swallow their principles just to play this.

Which is even more ironic considering I actually have WMMA5. But while I am hyped at TEW 20's release, I am also aware that life goes on beyond it. I mean, I've seen a few topics on steam asking similar questions about this game and a few others, so it got me curious to the possibility. I already have the games anyway, but on a personal note I wouldn't mind getting a steam version for it.

One wonders how many potential new hardcore fans would be missed by not having it on Steam, though.

The Steam versions have already attracted some new players, judging by reviews and forum comments.

Yep. They'll never know if it's actually a good business model unless they actually put a real title up on Steam.

If you're talking about the negatives of Steam being that the game could pirated (GDS games have been pirated already) and maybe some fees and profit margins decreasing because they are split in some way, I would think that putting the game on a more mainstream platform would even out those losses AND would make people a lot happier that they don't have to deal with this garbage E-License system that we've been dealing with for fifffffftttteeeeeeeeeeennnnn yeeeeeearrrsssss.....

And if they don't wanna go to steam with their main titles for obvious reasons, at least put titles like WMMA4, who already have a sequel, up there, so that people can be familiar with the product and come visit to meet the new games. Yes, I would love if even the new games would have a steam release, but I also understand the decision. However, since it's probably not happening, GDS would have a lot to gain to at least put other titles up there, like WMMA4.

Anyway, I'm assuming that are no plans to release WMMA4 on steam yet, nor do some kind of redemption, or whatever it's called, for those who already own either WMMA4 or 5. To me it's not a problem, as I said, since I already have the latest versions anyway, but I was just curious if there were any plans regarding that possibility.
