Microsoft's Minecraft has already had tremendous success over the years across multiple platforms, but there are still some platforms it's not available on. One, in particular, missing out is Steam - while Minecraft can be downloaded through the Microsoft Store on PC, it's not yet expanded to Valve's launcher.

This could all be set to change, based on a recent discovery. As "verified" by Windows Central, Game Pass Ultimate subscribers have spotted a new anniversary perk where users can receive 500 Minecoins for Minecraft: Bedrock Edition and one of the platforms apparently supported is Steam.

Minecraft isn't available at all on Steam right now, so this has already led to some speculation. The survival and crafting game is currently celebrating 15 years, and Microsoft has said on numerous occasions how it wants to expand its audience as much as possible, so a release on Steam could give the game a boost.

Microsoft already offers other Minecraft games including Minecraft Dungeons and Minecraft Legends on Steam. In addition to this, most of its Xbox Game Studios lineup has been released on the platform including series like Halo and Forza Motorsport.

If we hear any updates or developments, we'll let you know.
