The Division 2 will not launch on Steam

The Division 2 will not launch on Steam

Epic Games, best known for the Unreal Engine and chart-topping Fortnite Battle Royale, announced its plan to launch a digital distribution platform open to third-party developers back in December 2018.

It appears that The Division 2 for PC on the Epic Games Store has regional pricing. Publishers use Steam's developer tools to create pages and Valve reviews them and makes them live once the publisher says they are ready.

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".

Ubisoft revealed the PC minimum and recommended system requirements for The Division 2, and it turns out that they're quite tame.

Ubisoft's The Division 2 won't be launching on Steam, but it will be available on Epic's competing platform. The specifics of this deal are unclear, however, it would be a cool and huge change to see every Ubisoft title moving forward release on the Epic Games Store.

Ubisoft announced today the Tom Clancy's The Division 2 will be available on both Epic's store and UPLAY, and will not be coming out on Steam. Certain future games, including Far Cry: New Dawn, are also still planned for Steam release, Ubisoft told Variety. 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. All developers stand to save between 8 and 18 percent by ditching Valve for Epic. Though the game won't be hitting Steam officially, Ubisoft notes in a press release that any pre-orders placed on platforms other than Uplay and the Epic Game Store will still be honored, despite the recent semi-exclusivity announcement.
