Ubisoft Will Bring More Games to the Epic Store
Ubisoft Will Convey Extra Video games to the Epic Retailer
After all, they haven’t but specified if these different video games will even change into Epic Retailer unique.
Bringing The Division 2 completely to the Epic Retailer is a shocker on Ubisoft’s half, however there may be extra to return. Within the announcement that they made concerning the sport’s exclusivity to Epic’s storefront, in addition they confirmed that they are going to be bringing additional PC video games to the platform going ahead.
Epic’s CEO Tim Sweeney mentioned, “As long-time followers and companions of Ubisoft, we’re thrilled to carry a variety of superior Ubisoft video games to the Epic Video games retailer. We goal to offer probably the most publisher-friendly retailer, offering direct entry to clients and an 88 per cent income cut up, enabling sport creators to additional reinvest in constructing nice video games.”
Ubisoft’s VP of partnerships Chris Early added, “We entrust Epic to ship a easy journey for our followers, from preordering the sport and having fun with our Beta to the launch of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 on March 15. Epic continues to disrupt the online game trade, and their third get together digital distribution mannequin is the newest instance, and one thing Ubisoft desires to assist.”
Now the necessary factor to notice right here is that Epic Retailer exclusivity isn’t talked about by way of the opposite video games. Whereas we all know that The Division 2 shall be unique to the Epic Retailer, there may be nothing within the press launch that essentially signifies or implies that future Ubisoft video games could also be unique to Epic’s launcher too. For now, these different titles nonetheless have retailer pages on Steam, so we are able to assume that they might come to Steam, too.
The opposite necessary factor the press launch specifies is that these different video games shall be “within the coming yr”. Because of this Ubisoft’s upcoming video games are those that will transfer over to the Epic Retailer (although nothing is basically stopping them from placing older hits, corresponding to Siege, on the service both).
In any case, as I mentioned earlier, it is a main coup for Epic. If they will preserve Ubisoft’s video games unique to their launcher on PC, they’re going to draw plenty of customers very quick.
