Ubisoft Games Are Returning to Steam

With launch of digital distribution outlet Epic Games Store in late 2018, several new PC releases slowly started moving over from rival platform Steam to secure a 88% revenue cut and a few of them were paid by Epic Games for exclusivity.

Among many other video game companies, French developer/publisher Ubisoft started making their new games exclusive to Epic Store. It took them a good few years to consider bringing few of their PC releases back to Steam once again.

Ubisoft confirms during a recent interview that Anno 1800, Assassin's Creed Valhalla and Roller Champions are coming to Steam next month. Valhalla is their biggest game in history and it will arrive on Steam's marketplace this December.

During a recent interview, Ubisoft spokesperson Jessica Roache stated that they are constantly evaluating a variety of platforms to bring their games to different audience while already doing that for players across PC via Ubisoft Connect.

However, Roache denied commenting on whether Ubisoft will bring their games to Steam or if it will be on case-by-case basis. Ubisoft stopped putting new titles on Steam since 2019 and has delisted PC version of Anno 1800 from Steam.

Roache also claimed that Ubisoft never stopped their relationship with Valve even though most new releases moved to Epic Games Store. Despite focusing on rival marketplace, they launched some DLCs and existing titles are still playable.

Shortly after Epic Games online storefront debuted, Ubisoft pulled all of their upcoming games from Steam and made them EGS-exclusive. Back then, Ubisoft executive suggested that Valve's business revenue model to be very unrealistic.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla will become available to purchase on Steam from December 6, as dev team rolls out its final content update. Earlier this year, Ubisoft removed few older games from Steam after shutting down online multiplayer.
