The PC Version of The Division 2 Will be Bypassing Steam

The Division 2 will not launch on 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.
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.
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.
