News - Ubisoft Abandons Steam For Epic Games Store With The Division 2 PC Release

Ubisoft Abandons Steam For Epic Games Store With The Division 2 PC Release

Ubisoft has announced the PC version of The Division 2 will release solely on the Ubisoft Store and Epic Games Store. So, unlike the original The Division, Ubisoft's upcoming third-person shooter is skipping out on releasing on Steam.

This won't be the only Ubisoft title that Epic steals away from Steam either. In a blog post, Epic revealed that it is partnering with Ubisoft "on additional select titles." Those games have not yet been announced, but Epic did tease that information would come out "during the coming year." Epic and Ubisoft's partnership might set a new precedent for major developers picking one PC game store over others, changing the PC gaming landscape to more closely reflect the scramble for first-party exclusives seen on consoles.

Ubisoft previously released the system requirements for the PC version of The Division 2, revealing the different specifications you'll need to run the game at bare minimum, recommended, high, and elite performance. Each performance type requirement is listed below.

In late 2018, Fortnite creator Epic announced a new PC game store that undercut Steam by offering developers a better deal for launching their game on the new platform--especially if the title is made with Unreal Engine. Epic also secured several exclusives right out of the gate, such as Hades and the PC version of Journey, and then went on to nab other PC games expected to launch on Steam, like the latter half of The Walking Dead: The Final Season. Discord has also announced its store will offer developers a more lucrative cut of their games' profits in comparison to both Steam and Epic, and is working on securing additional exclusive titles of its own as well.

The Division 2 also releases for Xbox One and PS4, and is scheduled to launch on March 15.
