Yesterday, Ubisoft has announced that its upcoming online shooter The Division 2 for PC will not be coming to Steam.
The Division 2 will launch on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on March 15th. 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".
Ubisoft's is interested to get as many players as possible, and that means that the game needs to be extremely well optimized, and they promised the "PC version of the game includes a host of features, including uncapped frame rate, uncapped display resolution, full UI and HUD customisation, multiscreen and widescreen support, variable refresh rate support, and HDR support".More news: Professional Tennis Players Investigated In Match-Fixing Scandal
Epic says that it'll be partnering with Epic again in future with "additional select titles" to be announced later this year.
In fact, Ubisoft continuously released new content for the game over the course of three years, building a powerful and eager community. The difference in revenue split, with Epic Games offering 88 percent of the profits over Steam's 70 percent probably sealed the deal. 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.
