Blimey. Ubisoft have announced that The Division 2 will no longer be available for purchase on Steam and will be moving to the Epic Games Store instead. Those who have pre-ordered the game on Steam will still get their copy but new customers must go to Epic or purchase from Ubisoft’s own digital store where pre-orders are already up.
“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,” said Ubisoft’s VP of partnerships, Chris Early.
Ubisoft will also team up with Epic for “additional select titles” in the future and will be working with them to incorporate Uplay in to the Epic ecosystem.
The Division 2 is the first triple-A game to move from Steam to Epic, will other publishers follow suit?
