Ubisoft: a radical decision that pleases the players

It was “in the pipeline” in a completely unofficial way via data changes but it is now a reality: Ubisoft will return to the Valve store: Steam. The choice is not innocent for the French-speaking publisher because there is a real shortfall.

Ubisoft backtracks

As a Ubisoft spokesperson says seriously The Vergethe reason is obviously also pecuniary and not only to “please the players”:

We are constantly evaluating how to deliver our games to different audiences wherever they are, while providing a cohesive player ecosystem through Ubisoft Connect.

Ubisoft has stopped publishing new games on Steam as of 2019. Since then Ghost Recon Breakpoint The Division 2 and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla have been released via Epic Games Store and the publisher’s own in-house platform. This should bring a little more freedom to PC gamers.

It is true that with the proliferation of platforms, it is not necessarily very pleasant for a user to have to scatter his library and to have in mind several accounts to manage. Steam has become the default choice for many gamers for several years. Under these conditions, it is obvious that it is impossible for a publisher to deprive himself of such a community, which is only growing from year to year. Especially with the permanent expansion of the Chinese market which is gaining more and more momentum.

What do you think of the publisher’s return to the Valve platform? Is it a good news for yous?
