The team-up between Ubisoft and Epic Games will also see 'additional select titles' heading to the Epic Games Store in the future
MANILA, Philippines – Ubisoft announced Wednesday, January 9, it was joining forces with Epic Games to bring upcoming action-shooter The Division 2 to the Epic Games Store in addition to Ubisoft's digital storefront, UPlay.
The team-up points to Epic Games Store also getting more Ubisoft games. Ubisoft and Epic said in a press release, the two will “also partner on additional select titles [for the Epic Games Store] to be announced during the coming year,”
The team-up also means Steam will no longer sell The Division 2. When asked, a Ubisoft spokesperson told game news site Polygon, "We have no plans currently on releasing Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 on Steam."
The shake-up follows the launch of the Epic Games Store in early December. The store's main draw for developers is an 88% cut of revenue towards developers, with 12% going to Epic Games for overhead and maintenance. Meanwhile, gamers are promised better curation, as well as free games they can redeem for their accounts every two weeks across 2019.
