Weeks ago, there was speculation in the Ubisoft community as leaks were revealed that Ubisoft has added Steam versions of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Roller Champions, as they were spotted in code in Ubisoft’s Connect launcher.
This might signal future releases to be on Steam such as Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed franchise, as Ubisoft is developing six titles in the franchise; Mirage, Jade, Hexe, Red, Nexus, and Invictus.
The next upcoming title would be Assassin’s Creed Mirage, all eyes are peeled for the title release next year.
In addition to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Project Orlando, Ubisoft’s new The Crew title was spotted being added to the database as well, hinting at future games to be added to Steam from Ubisoft in the near future.
In 2019, Ubisoft announced it will be moving its games to Epic Store, which sparked massive debate as Epic Store allows Ubisoft to keep 88% of its game sales earnings as compared to 70% on Steam.
In a partnership announcement in 2019, Tim Sweeney, founder and CEO of Epic Games said “We aim to provide the most publisher-friendly store, providing direct access to customers and an 88% revenue split, enabling game creators to further reinvest in building great games.”
