After Activision, who released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 4 years after the last game in the series, Ubisoft is also considering a return to Steam. This was revealed by the data miners, who over the last few hours have revealed how some titles would appear in the Valve client database, a sign that probably the French publisher and developer actually intends to return to launching its games after more than three years of partnership with Epic Games.
At the moment, three clues have been found that suggest the return of Ubisoft games to Steam and refer to three different games published and developed by the publisher. The first is a reference to Assassin's Creed Valhalla, the second instead to Roller Champions. The third, however, to a new game in the series of The Crew.
The one made by Yves Guillemot is a decidedly important change of course. If it is true that there is no indication that Ubisoft has abandoned its PC client, it is also true that since 2019 the company's games have never appeared on Steam again, preferring the Valve client to by Epic Games. The partnership began with Tom's Clancy The Division 2 and it quickly spread to any other game published by the publisher and developer, including precisely the new chapter of Assassin's Creed. A return on his steps could be dictated by the desire to increase the number of players even more. Finally, it is not excluded that the company will continue to publish on both available clients.
As usual in these cases, we remind you that we are faced with a simple indiscretion. To confirm Ubisoft's return to Steam, it will be necessary to wait a little longer and we look forward to any official announcements from the publisher and developer. which will clarify the situation.
