Anyone who plays video games knows who Ubisoft are. The developer, well-known for titles such as Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry and others, made headlines a few years back. The reason- shifting their catalogue exclusively to Epic Games Stores. The announcement by Ubisoft of exclusively selling their PC catalogue on the Epic Games Store received some criticism.
However, it seems things are ready to change out here. As reported by the Verge, Ubisoft is officially bringing back their games over to Steam. The games coming back to the Steam storefront are
- Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
- Anno 1800 and its DLCs
- Roller Champions
Ubisoft spokesperson Jessica Roache talked to Verge about the happenings.
“We’re constantly evaluating how to bring our games to different audiences wherever they are while providing a consistent player ecosystem through Ubisoft Connect,” she said. However, when asked if Ubisoft will bring their future titles to Steam from now onwards, she declined to answer.
The announcement raises more confusion than quells curiosities. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is a 2020 flagship title by the company.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage, the next entry in the long-running series is still exclusive to Epic Games Store. Whether this is a one-time thing by Ubisoft or they are slowly going to start bringing all their games on Steam is something we have to wait and watch.
For now, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is due to release on December 6th, 2022. So if anyone was waiting for the title to launch on Steam to try it, now is a great time. Roller Champions and Anno 1800 are yet to get their Steam page as of writing this.
