Will LotR: Return to Moria Come Out on Steam? Answered

LotR: Return to Moria is an EGS exclusive, but it won't always be.

There are a few choices for where you can buy your games on PC these days, with Steam and the Epic Game Store being the two big ones. We’ll discuss whether Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria will come out on Steam in this guide.

Does Return to Moria Have a Steam Release Date?

Epic Game Store exclusives are just as common than ever, Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria is just one of a few to release this year. Another notable example that just recently got its big DLC is Dead Island 2. But, back on topic.

As it stands, there is no official release date for Return to Moria on Steam. That doesn’t mean it won’t come out on Steam, but you’ve got at least a year to wait to see the Dwarven survival title on Valve’s platform. If you have a PlayStation 5, though, you won’t have to wait that long.

Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria is scheduled for a PS5 release on December 5. If you prefer Microsoft consoles, though, you’ll be waiting until sometime in early 2024 to see it on Xbox Series X|S.

How Long Does EGS Exclusivity Usually Last?

Generally it takes one to two years for a game released as an EGS exclusive to come out on Steam, as that tends to be the duration of their exclusivity deals. An example off the top of my head is Oddworld: Soulstorm, which released in April 2021 on EGS, and then later in July 2022 on Steam. Ooblets is another one, which released just recently on Steam after a nearly identical delay.

It’s most likely that LotR: Return to Moria will come out on Steam after a little bit over a year of being exclusive on the Epic Game Store, but we won’t get any announcement about it until either near the time or it’ll see a surprise release.
