The Division 2 Is Not Releasing On Steam And It’s Doing Wonders
During yesterday’s Ubisoft’s reports for the third quarter of the fiscal year 2019 CEO Yves Guillemot talked about Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, he revealed that going exclusive with Epic Games Store and Ubisoft’s Uplay Store has worked pretty well for the game. He confirms that pre-orders are doing way better than the original Tom Clancy’s The Division.
“There is a growing number of distribution platforms fighting for great content,”
“With this deal, we saw an opportunity to increase player’s exposure to our own store, while at the same time supporting a partner that greatly values our games and provides materially better terms.”
Guillemot went on to reveal that moving away from Steam hasn’t hurt the Division 2’s preorders. More people have bought the PC version in advance of its release than for the first Division game, and it’s done especially well on Uplay, where preorders are six times higher. “We believe this deal is a long-term positive for Ubisoft,” added the CEO.
The Division 2 isn’t the only Ubisoft game coming to Epic’s Store. The two companies said they would “also partner on additional select titles to be announced during the coming year.” The studio plans to release three or four AAA games between April 2019 and March 2020, though it never said what they might be.
The Division 2 releases on March 15 on PC exclusively through Epic Games Store. It will also be available on PS4, and Xbox One.
Pre-order owners will be granted a free game, players can pick from Ghost Recon: Wildlands, Far Cry Primal, or Watch Dogs 2.
