The PC Version of The Division 2 Will be Bypassing Steam

The Division 2 is choosing to launch on Epic Store instead of Steam The Division 2 will not launch on Steam

The publisher is bringing "Tom Clancy's The Division 2" to the Epic Games Store, it announced on Wednesday. Steam has a similar feature, allowing game companies to charge users in some regions less than the usual price tag when considering factors such as standard of living and spending power.

The Division 2 is available to pre-order now on the Epic Games Store ahead of a March 15th release.

More information on the upcoming partnership between Epic Games and Ubisoft for The Division 2 right here.

Ala. Sen. Murkowski calls for government to reopen while negotiations continue
Laurie Cardoza-Moore, resident of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, finds the lack of support for Rubio's bill outrageous. Read the full story at Fox News . "I fail to see why this legislation is a priority during the government shutdown ".

We don't know whether this is timed-exclusive deal, similarly to what we've seen with other games lately, and whether The Division 2 will find its way on Steam post-launch. Until today, only a handful of indie developers had made the switch.

In fact, Ubisoft continuously released new content for the game over the course of three years, building a powerful and eager community. The Steam listing will be pulled and no release is planned on Valve's platform. Epic Games also said in a statement that it "will also partner [with Ubisoft] on additional select titles to be announced during the coming year". We logged into our Epic Games Store account and were able to verify that this is indeed the case, although we're unsure if users would be able to change their location or spoof it using a VPN just to get a better deal, it's something that's still possible on GOG. Steam, which is now the largest digital games storefront, takes about 30% of all revenues, for comparison. The Steam page for the game, still visible in Google's cache, has been removed from Valve's platform, while Ubisoft has confirmed it has no immediate plans to make the game available anywhere bar its own platform and the Epic Games Store.

Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is set to be released on March 15, 2019. 'Epic continues to disrupt the video game industry, and their third party digital distribution model is the latest example, and something Ubisoft wants to support'. "It was a business decision to focus on Epic Store and Ubisoft Store for distribution of The Division 2 on PC". It will also offer a "substantial" campaign and a "robust" endgame that will expand via free DLC for all players.
