Hello I have a question, would we still be able to launch the game from Steam after the GameLauncher discontinuation on March?
I'm not sure since the news announcement about this doesn't specify the fate of Steam launching after the discontinuation of the direct launcher method.

    Steam will remain unaffected. It's not a simple process to get your game listed on there, much less removed. They would've specified in the news post if it was going to be stopped.

    I hope you're right Aggraphine, since the Nexon Launcher doesn't work on my computer, which leaves the Steam launcher as my last working method to start the game, and I do know it's also true for a lot of other players as well with the same limitation.

    If you read the posting,

    "The majority of our players are already using Nexon Launcher, and by discontinuing the older systems including direct launch"

    I've underlined and bolded the specific section. We might see the Steam launcher removed.

    Maybe in the future, but definitely not at the same time.
    This particular notice's title and contents talk only about the direct launch option.
    I'm sure they'd have said so if Steam launch were being removed as well, and given rewards to people switching from Steam, too.
