Tom Clancy's The Division 2 isn't coming to Steam

Epic Games Is Giving Away The Great ‘What Remains Of Edith Finch’ For Free

Before today's announcement, every pre-order for The Division 2 was only available through Ubisoft's Uplay service.

Updated: Ubisoft's "The Division" franchise appears to be ditching Steam on PC.

The news doesn't stop there, however, as Ubisoft also confirmed that they'll be partnering with Epic to bring future titles to the platform as well.


Though The Division 2 previously had an info page listed on Steam, Ubisoft confirmed to numerous press outlets that "we have no plans now on releasing Tom Clancy's The Division 2 on Steam". The publisher is bringing "Tom Clancy's The Division 2" to the Epic Games Store, it announced on Wednesday. Instead, The Division 2 would be coming to the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft's own storefront and digital rights management client, Uplay. In an unprecedented move on Ubisoft's part, the mega-publisher/developer announced that the PC version of the third-person RPG/shooter will only be available on the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store.

The Division 2 will launch on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on March 15th. Steam has a similar feature, allowing game companies to charge users in some regions less than the usual price tag when considering factors such as standard of living and spending power. The only way to get the game digitally on PC is either through the Ubisoft Store or the Epic Games store.

This new partnership doesn't mean Ubisoft is totally abandoning Steam. But The Division 2 is likely a big enough exclusive to convince many players to take a look at a service they might otherwise ignore. The difference in revenue split, with Epic Games offering 88 percent of the profits over Steam's 70 percent probably sealed the deal. "Epic continues to disrupt the video game industry, and their third party digital distribution model is the latest example, and something Ubisoft wants to support". And the Epic Games Store is gaining clout awfully quickly, especially now that a title as big as The Division 2 has signed a semi-exclusive deal that excludes its biggest rival.
