Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will launch this year on consoles (including Xbox Series X and PS5) and PC. For PC players, Ubisoft will follow a path similar to its other recent games, jumping Steam in favor of the Epic Games Store – at least initially, in a version structure similar to the publisher’s other recent games.

Ubisoft has confirmed that Valhalla will only be sold on a third-party store, the Epic Games Store. The game will also be released for PC via Ubisoft’s Uplay service. The return of the franchise after a year will certainly be a big draw for Epic’s digital store, which has seen an increasing number of third-party games launched exclusively in the past year.

Valhalla will become the first new main episode of the Assassin’s Creed series to skip Steam. It will also be the first game in the series to launch on next generation platforms. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey 2018 and the rest of the previous games are available for purchase on Steam now.

The Division 2 was the first major Ubisoft game to launch exclusively on the Epic Games Store. At the Game Developers Conference in 2019, Ubisoft and Epic extended their publishing contract for future titles, and we now know that one of them is Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

The Division 2 never came out on Steam, but the exact terms of Ubisoft’s Epic deal for Valhalla are unknown. Many other Epic exclusives, such as Borderlands 3 from 2K, were eventually released on Steam.

Ubisoft avoids Steam because of its business model. Vice President Chris Early said in an interview with the New York Times that Steam’s business model was “unrealistic”. He added: “This does not reflect the current situation in the world in terms of distribution of games. “

Steam generally retains 30% of game sales, including 70% to developers / publishers. In contrast, Epic Games Store offers much more to people who create games; on Epic Games Store, 88% of revenues go to developers.
