It has been suggested that Microsoft is out to destroy Steam according to Tim Sweeney, lead developer at Epic Games. He is of course the man behind the industry-leading Unreal Engine. He has voiced his opinion and raised concerns in a recent interview with print magazine "Edge", that Microsoft is systematically killing the digital distribution platform Steam. He suggests this is being done by eroding the reliability and longevity of the Win32 programming interface for PC versions of Windows, in favor of its UWP (Universal Windows Platform), through updates of the OS.
