Steam Workshop Creators Tally Over $57 Million In Sales

Posted February 3, 2015 by Bunneh3000 in News

One of the advantages of playing games on your PC is that the player community has a more passionate investment in the games that they love. For years, fans have taken the games that they love and utilized ‘workshops’ to develop mods to further the amount of content in their favorite game. Whether its changing all of the skins in Battlefield 2 to look like a scene out of G.I. Joe or building the entire continent of the Elder Scrolls games out of the Skyrim engine, mods have long been a fantastic part of PC gaming and the community.

Valve has managed to take that a step further and organize the way content is submitted and included in their gaming library. With the invention of their Steam Workshop, content creators can acutally get paid for their time and energy. As of recently, Steam announced that their Workshop collaboration has resulted in $57 million in sales for created items in  Team Fortress 2, Dota 2, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

As you can imagine, the amount of people that play these games regularly is huge so the market is certainly ripe. Valve has also announced that they are opening up 2 more non-Steam games to the workshop revenue sharing as well. Those games are Dungeon Defenders: Eternity and Chivalry: Medieval Warfare.

So if I were you I would jump on it and get to creating!
