A lot of cash has been dished out to the content creators on Steam and there’s more to be made as it starts to open up.
Until today, content creators could only make through the Steam Workshop from games such as Team Fortress 2, Dota 2, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive but that’s changing slowly but surely. To celebrate the fact content contribnuters have earned more that $50 million since 2011, Valve are opening up more games.
According to Valve so far 1500 contributers from 75 countries have been able to earn some cash and they say adding new games has been a “ton of work”.
New features have also been added for workshop auditors where they can check real-time sales and data with revenue breakdowns for each item that’s put up for sale. This is available through the “View you revenue” option in a creator’s “My Workshop Files” section.
It looks like being creative may just pay off in the future as this move will likely encourage more PC gamers to participate in all the different game workshops that spring up in the future.
