The Division 2 Is Launching on Epic Games Store, Not Steam

The Division 2 will utilize the popular ‘Support-A-Creator’ feature

Traditionally, Valve takes a 30 percent cut from all sales on steam. Since "The Division 2" is now semi-exclusive to the Epic Games Store, Ubisoft and/or Valve pulled the Steam listing shortly after today's announcement. The only way to get the game digitally on PC is either through the Ubisoft Store or the Epic Games store.

Ubisoft revealed the PC minimum and recommended system requirements for The Division 2, and it turns out that they're quite tame.

'As long-time fans and partners of Ubisoft, we're thrilled to bring a range of awesome Ubisoft games to the Epic Games store, ' crows Tim Sweeney, founder and chief executive of Epic Games, in his announcement of the deal. The specifics of this deal are unclear, however, it would be a cool and huge change to see every Ubisoft title moving forward release on the Epic Games Store.

Though The Division 2 previously had an info page listed on Steam, Ubisoft confirmed to numerous press outlets that "we have no plans now on releasing Tom Clancy's The Division 2 on Steam". Additionally, Ubisoft says it is working with Epic to integrate its Uplay digital rights management software with Epic's online services. (The Division 2 is one of relatively few games that could easily reach this threshold; the original Division broke all sorts of sales records.) That's $10 million to Valve for distribution.

Google is rolling out Android Auto support for Podcasts
It is great Trend Micro reported these apps to Google who swiftly suspended the fake apps after verifying the report. Its activities cost victims 250MB of mobile traffic every day and subscribed them to a premium service in Brazil.

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.

And thus the Epic Games store was born, but save for one notable exclusive, it seemed as though Epic would have a long and treacherous road to hoe to establish itself.

This new partnership doesn't mean Ubisoft is totally abandoning Steam.

The Epic Games Store launched late a year ago, and it's not hard to see why it's becoming an attractive alternative to Steam. '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'.
