‘The Division 2’ Coming to Epic Games Store, Pulled From Steam

The Division 2 for PC Will Not Come to Steam Launching on Epic Games Store Instead

The Capitol building is Steam. The PC version is available to preorder now on the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games Store.

Epic's announcement doesn't mention Steam, but we have just learned that The Division 2's Steam store page no longer exists.

That alone would have been big enough news, but the fact that The Division 2, and every other title in the Epic Games Store, will be a part of the Support-A-Creator program is yet another big move on Epic's part that will surely entice more companies to their platform.

While Ubisoft didn't go into further detail on its reasoning for eschewing Steam in this case, Epic's more generous revenue-sharing scheme likely played an outsized role.

In addition to his homophobic tweets, his past stand up routines had jokes is laced with anti-gay remarks. It's still not clear if Kevin Hart will host this year's Oscar ceremony.

The jump is the result of a newly forged partnership between Ubisoft and Epic Games that will see a handful of future Ubisoft games announced for the platform this year. Epic said it will "work to integrate key components of Ubisoft's Uplay and Epic's online services to provide gamers from both ecosystems with more seamless social features and interoperability". It's a major coup for Epic's store, by far the biggest game to make the move to the platform since its launch late past year. And the Epic Games Store is gaining clout awfully quickly, especially now that a title as big as The Division 2 has signed a semi-exclusive deal that excludes its biggest rival.

"We entrust Epic to deliver a smooth journey for our fans, from pre-ordering the game and enjoying our Beta to the launch", said Chris Early, vice president of partnerships at Ubisoft. The first Division game attracted millions of owners through Steam, according to estimates from tracking service Steam Spy.

Epic Games initially made waves with the launch of their Game Store by ensuring developers that they'd get a much better revenue split (88-12) than they would with Steam (70-30).
