Initially, survivors could jump into action on any of two select platforms using Xbox Play Anywhere system. Then an accidental leak from PAX East 2018 hinted at possibility of future Steam release before only a month of its launch.

An error message popped up unexpectedly during a developer live-stream on Twitch regarding a login issue of Steam. Though all video evidence was deleted, people were skeptical when they found Valve's launcher listed in FAQ page as a topic.

Original SoD found home in Early Access of Steam a few months after console launch, followed by remastered release of Year One: Survival Edition, most likely because there was no timed exclusivity period for Xbox console back then.
