The Bethesda Launcher will be shut down on May 11th

Back in February, Bethesda announced plans to place a merciful bullet in the brain at Bethesda Launcher, an unloved alternative to certain other popular digital game management programs. These plans have since been elaborated in an update to a blog post about sunset launch and migration to Steam. “If you have games through the launcher,” it says, “don’t worry. From April 27, you’ll be able to migrate your games and Wallet to your Steam account.”

Detailed instructions on what to do will be given on April 27th. Some games will have their saved transfer automatically, while others will require you to manually copy them to the appropriate folder. “At this time,” Bethesda writes, “we expect almost all saved progress to be transferred automatically or manually, with the exception of Wolfenstein: Youngblood, who is currently unable to transfer.” DLC and in-game currency are transferred automatically, which is good news
