‘The Division 2’ Coming to Epic Games Store, Pulled From Steam

The Division 2 for PC Will Not Come to Steam Launching on Epic Games Store Instead

Traditionally, Valve takes a 30 percent cut from all sales on steam. The Epic Games Store in particular has managed to snag itself a monumental win, as a new partnership with Ubisoft will see The Division 2 snub Steam entirely in favour of the new platform. Alongside selling the title on the Epic Games Store, Ubisoft will offer it (and future PC titles) on the Ubisoft Store.

Ubisoft revealed the PC minimum and recommended system requirements for The Division 2, and it turns out that they're quite tame. It was a business decision to focus on Epic Store and Ubisoft Store for distribution of The Division 2 on PC.

With that in mind, the company has plans to "partner on additional select titles to be announced during the coming year".

In a press release, Epic and Ubisoft say that the Standard, Gold, and Ultimate versions of the game will all be available, and will guarantee access to the game's private beta. The game had a now removed Steam Page, with a Ubisoft representative saying "We have no plans currently on releasing Tom Clancy's The Division 2 on Steam".

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". Ubisoft and Epic say they're now working to integrate key components of Ubisoft's Uplay ecosystem and Epic's online services to give players more seamless social features.

The Division 2 is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on March 15. As for why Ubisoft would dump Steam? At the same time, that attention from gamers will increase the visibility of other titles on Epic's store, potentially feeding a virtuous cycle for developers who might be thinking about taking advantage of Epic's more favorable revenue sharing. Ubisoft fully supports Epic and their third-party distribution model, which is in the long-term, beneficial for publishers both large and indie and the video games industry.
