The first-person factory building game Satisfactory went into early access on the Epic Games Store in March, and did very well for itself, selling more than 500,000 copies in less than three months. In October, Coffee Stain Studios designer Nathalie Verwei praised the decision to launch exclusively on the Epic Store, saying that the financial security it provides means developers “can just focus on making a good game,” and that complaints about it come from “a loud minority.”

Still, there was never any doubt that Satisfactory would make its way to Steam eventually—Coffee Stain said so in February, for one thing—and today the studio announced that it will happen on June 8, for real and no fooling. (That clarification was apparently necessary because, as community manager Jace Varlet says in the video below, “we troll you guys a lot, but we’re not trolling you with the release date.”)
