Steam becoming less viable?

I’ve noticed that many games are no longer being released on Steam or at least not yet and not anytime close releases on other sites.

I understand that it takes longer to get things done with a platform like Steam but the COG games are still keeping up. So is Steam distribution something the HG authors have to opt in? if so, are many of them opting out?

Steam is where I get all of my COG content so seeing quite a few recent games not coming on the platform certainly concerns me a little bit

This has been discussed on this thread: Hosted Games on PC/Steam

tl;dr: For Hosted Games to get a Steam release it needs to be sure that they will recoup the cost of putting them on Steam.
