The Division 2 Coming To Epic Games Store Ditching Steam

Epic Games announced that Ubisoft’s The Division 2 will be released through the PC platform exclusively in the Epic Games store, a decision which means the game will be skipping Steam.

“We have no plans currently on releasing Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 on Steam,” a Ubisoft rep said. Ubisoft and Epic will “also partner on additional select titles [coming to the Epic Games Store] to be announced during the coming year.”

“We entrust Epic to deliver a smooth journey for our fans, from preordering the game and enjoying our Beta to the launch of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 on March 15,” Ubisoft vice president of partnerships Chris Early said in the announcement. “Epic continues to disrupt the videogame industry, and their third party digital distribution model is the latest example, and something Ubisoft wants to support.”

The partnership between Epic Games and Ubisoft marks the latest accomplishment from the Fortnite creator after it launched its own store and offered game creators an attractive incentive to sell their games on the platform. This deal doesn’t appear to be ending with The Division 2 though as Epic Games confirmed that the two entities will “partner on additional select titles to be announced during the coming year.”

“As long-time fans and partners of Ubisoft, we’re thrilled to bring a range of awesome Ubisoft games to the Epic Games store,” said Tim Sweeney, founder and CEO of Epic Games. “We aim to provide the most publisher-friendly store, providing direct access to customers and an 88% revenue split, enabling game creators to further reinvest in building great games.”

“The Division 2” is one of the first high-profile AAA titles to come to the Epic Games Store. 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.

Set seven months after the events of the previous game, “Tom Clancy’s The Division 2” moves its setting from New York City to Washington D.C. The PC version is being developed by Massive in parallel with its console brethren and it has features that cater specifically to a wide variety of gaming builds, Ubisoft said. It will also offer a “substantial” campaign and a “robust” endgame that will expand via free DLC for all players.
