The PC Version of The Division 2 Will be Bypassing Steam

Furthermore, it looks like Ubisoft decide to drop Steam this time and they will be releasing their games through uPlay and the recently released Epic Games Store. Pre-orders for the game are now live on the Epic Games Store.

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. As reported by Polygon, the semi-exclusive deal will begin in March with the launch of The Division 2.

But perhaps the biggest draw to Epic Games over Steam is the percentage of revenue share: Epic Games offers a much larger percentage for developers (especially those that sell fewer units) than Steam, meaning they'll make more money in the long run.

We don't know whether this is timed-exclusive deal, similarly to what we've seen with other games lately, and whether The Division 2 will find its way on Steam post-launch. Additionally, Ubisoft says it is working with Epic to integrate its Uplay digital rights management software with Epic's online services. Epic introduced the Epic Games Store in early December, positioning it as a direct competitor to Valve's Steam.

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.

When we reached out to Ubisoft, a representative they told us they weren't able to provide comment. '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'.

It appears that The Division 2 for PC on the Epic Games Store has regional pricing. Ubisoft's second foray into the post-apocalypse is now available for pre-order from Epic's new store-front, which was announced late previous year and offers an 88/12% revenue share with developers.
