In 2019, Ubisoft shifted away from releasing its games on Steam starting with The Division 2.
The Tom Clancy Shoot-And-Loot Experience
The Tom Clancy shoot-to-looter was initially released on Ubisoft’s own digital storefront and the Epic Games Store. It is going to be available on Steam in February, as a part of Ubisoft’s decision to go back to Valve’s platform.

A Ubisoft representative mentioned how they are consistently looking for ways to make their games available to more people, which was why they made the decision.
Why Division 2 Ditched Steam?
Back in 2019, Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft, mentioned during an earnings call that snubbing Steam for The Division 2 is a “long-term positive”. Certainly, part of his optimism was due to the fact that Epic Store only takes a 12% cut on revenue as opposed to Steam’s take of 30%.
Since the release of these games has now finished, buying up any remaining potential customers on Steam would be a financially sound business move, even with a lower revenue share.
In his The Division 2 review, Brendy (RPS in peace) praised it for being both vapid hogwash and a moreish, rock-solid shooter. He also perceived it as an improvement over the first game, which was already gratifying and a mindless time-waster.
If you’re a fan of Steam games and prefer blind-firing from behind low walls, January 12th is like a second holiday to look forward to.
