Ubisoft goes Steam-less, embraces Epic Games Store for The Division 2

The Division 2 will utilize the popular ‘Support-A-Creator’ feature

We logged into our Epic Games Store account and were able to verify that this is indeed the case, although we're unsure if users would be able to change their location or spoof it using a VPN just to get a better deal, it's something that's still possible on GOG.

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.

While The Division 2 will, of course, still be available on Ubisoft's own digital store, Uplay and the Epic Store will be the only two places to purchase the sequel since its removal from Steam this morning.

Traditionally, Valve takes a 30 percent cut from all sales on steam.

Though The Division 2 previously had an info page listed on Steam, Ubisoft confirmed to numerous press outlets that "we have no plans now on releasing Tom Clancy's The Division 2 on Steam".

Brexit impact: Jaguar Land Rover to cut 4,500 jobs worldwide
A Ford spokesman said the auto maker now assumes that any Brexit deal would keep tariff-free trade between Britain and Europe. Sales at the SUV-heavy unit, more than double the size of the sports-car business, declined by 6.9 per cent previous year .

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.

Before today's announcement, every pre-order for The Division 2 was only available through Ubisoft's Uplay service. It's a major coup for Epic's store, by far the biggest game to make the move to the platform since its launch late a year ago.

Though the Epic Games Store has enjoyed some smaller exclusive releases since its December launch-including Supergiant's Hades-The Division 2 is the first big-budget title from a major developer to ignore Steam in favor of the new platform. "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". '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'.

The Division 2 will launch on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on March 15th.
