Steam Greenlight will be abolished within the next year, according to Curve Studios design director Jonathan Biddle.
The developer claimed on Twitter he had spoken to Valve at GDC, which told him the community voting service would be "gone within 12 months".
Valve boss Gabe Newell has previously said Greenlight would be taken down in future and replaced by a user-curated platform.
We met with Valve at GDC, and they say Greenlight will be gone within 12 months. They'll still offer curated space, but otherwise be open.— Bidds (@onebitbeyond) March 25, 2014
Sounds like they're quite far into testing the open system. End goal is user-curated pages, so you can follow your favourite tastemaker.— Bidds (@onebitbeyond) March 25, 2014
Launched in 2012 as a solution to a bottleneck in the game approval process, the system has received a mixed response from developers trying to get their game on Valve's digital storefront.
