The PC Version of The Division 2 Will be Bypassing Steam

10 January 2019, 12:26 | Casey Mitchell

The Division 2 will not launch on Steam

The Division 2 is choosing to launch on Epic Store instead of Steam

The Capitol building is Steam. 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.

The announcement comes as Epic Games has once again made a power move against Steam by securing the rights to sell the highly-anticipated Tom Clancy's The Division 2 in the Epic Games Store.

Pandya is still expected to play in three one-day internationals against Australia starting Saturday in Sydney . The show hosted by Bollywood producer and director Karan Johar encourages guests to open up on personal matters.

While the Epic Games Store has been around since December 2018, it looks like the service will get even bigger here in 2019.

The Epic Game Store will be the only third-party PC marketplace to sell The Division 2 outside of Ubisoft's own digital storefront.

Don't worry if you've already ordered Tom Clancy's The Division 2 from another online store: Ubisoft has guaranteed it will honor all purchases of the title.

The companies are also working in tandem to "integrate key components" of Uplay's ecosystem and Epic's online services to provide. Ubisoft and Epic will "also partner on additional select titles [coming to the Epic Games Store] to be announced during the coming year". The difference in revenue split, with Epic Games offering 88 percent of the profits over Steam's 70 percent probably sealed the deal. Ubisoft's upcoming Far Cry: New Dawn will still be launching on Steam despite this recent Epic Store partnership.

Roger Federer in tears talking about his late coach Peter Carter
Roger had a very important person in his life that unfortunately passed away tragically: Peter Carter. Speaking emotionally, Federer said: "I miss him so much, I hope he would be proud".

Ubisoft Vice President Chris Early wrote, "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". Pre-orders for the game are now live on the Epic Games Store. At the same time, that attention from gamers will increase the visibility of other titles on Epic's store, potentially feeding a virtuous cycle for developers who might be thinking about taking advantage of Epic's more favorable revenue sharing.
