Halo Wars: Definitive Edition Heading To Steam

I'm surprised that Halo Wars: Definitive Edition is coming to Steam April 20th. Microsoft has been pushing their Windows Store front the past year, introducing cross-buy for Xbox One to Windows 10 via digital purchases. But now it seems even some of their products are leaking their way to Steam with pre-Windows 10 support.

Halo Wars: Definitive Edition is an enhanced version of the Xbox 360 title, Halo Wars, featuring improved graphics and all of the game's DLC. The one issue I can see is that Steam is not going to allow cross-play with Windows 10 store owners. As noted:

Network play for this product is exclusive to Steam. Cross-play with Windows Store versions of the same game is not supported.
It's the one blow for this coming to Steam. But I guess we'll see which platform is in for the long haul at the end of it all: Steam or Windows Store.
