In a bit turn of events, it has been finally decided that Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 will not release on Steam platform, but it will be on the Epic Games Store. Epic Games Store is making their game strong by going after from one publisher to other, persuading them to release their games on Epic Games Store.
The Division 2 unlike its the original Division game which released on Uplay and Steam, will now release on Epic Games Store and Ubisoft’s Uplay for Microsoft Windows platform only. Epic Games Store has scored its first Ubisoft game to release on their platform, that too being a triple-A game.
There is no doubt other big publishers like Warner Bros., Activision and others will soon follow the footprints of Ubisoft and release their games on Epic Games Store. This all heat started when valve decided to introduce a change in policy of game shares last year. Epic Games Store jumped right in the mean time and introduced its own policy, by which, the publisher or developer of the game were to get maximum share cut that the platform regulator like Steam.
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 will surely sell a couple of million copies and now Valve will miss out on the profit it could have bagged, had The Division 2 released on Steam.
As it stands, till today all the pre-order of The Division 2 were made through Uplay. However, after today, players can either place a pre-order of The Division 2 on Uplay or Epic Games Store. Remember, placing a pre-order will grant you access to upcoming beta version of the game.
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 releases March 15, 2019 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows. It is clear now that those who want to play the game on PC will have to buy the game on Uplay or Epic Games Store.
