It is not clear why Ubisoft stopped placing its PC video games on Steam or why it is coming again now, however it seems to be selecting up the place it left off: Valhalla was the 2020 flagship sport within the Murderer’s Creed sequence, with the subsequent title, Murderer’s Creed Mirage, not due until 2023. Curler Champions got here out this Might. And Anno 1800 is definitely coming again to Steam after beforehand having been eliminated — it is from 2019. Nevertheless it’s no secret that Ubisoft pulled video games from Steam to make them unique to the Epic Video games Retailer as a substitute, which famously gave publishers thousands and thousands to draw video games to that rival platform.
