The PC versions of Resident Evil 5 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will be transitioning from Games for Windows Live to Steamworks early next year, Capcom said this morning on their Capcom Unity blog.


Current owners of both games will be transitioned to Steamworks alongside those that purchase both games for the first time. Specific dates for the move haven’t been announced yet, but we’ll keep an eye out for more info.


“With the global popularity of the Steamworks platform, we’ve seen high demand from fans to bring these highly requested titles to this platform,” Capcom said. “Moving to Steamworks will allow more fans across the world to enjoy these games.”
