Officially, there have been no announcements from Steam. However, the platform updated the guidelines this week, adding the new rule. In the updated text, there is the 13th rule among the prohibitions of “applications built on blockchain technology that emit or allow the exchange of cryptocurrencies or NFTs”.

The new decision will affect famous games already released or in development, such as My Neighbor Alice and Age of Rust. Also, other games are in the crosshairs of the platform.

The change came to light through a Twitter statement from SpacePirates, the developer behind Age of Rust. According to the post, from Steam’s point of view it is that items have value in the real world and the platform does not allow items to have value outside the platform.

It’s still unclear how many games left Steam’s list in the coming weeks. It is estimated that around 64 games could be in Steam’s crosshairs. Among the most popular are Mir4, Chainmonster, Evaverse, Dissolution, Age of Rust and My Neighbor Alice.

So far, Steam has not commented on the withdrawal of games or on the motivations for the new rule.
