bethesda softworks

After years of upkeep and gradual decline, Bethesda Softworks decided to sunset the Bethesda game launcher and online store.

Users who hadn't already migrated to a different platform needed a way to transfer their games, achievements, and virtual currency.

While my team initially explored a multi-platform solution — allowing users to choose where to send their assets — stakeholders decided that Steam was good enough. I also explored individual transfers of each game in a user's library, but Engineering weighed in, preferring a bulk asset transfer.

The solution was a simple two-step process: link your Steam account, then a one-click transfer of assets.

Overall feedback was positive, although some users experienced server issues or account lockouts.
