Ubisoft Games Return to Origin?

 

As many of you already know, many of Ubisoft's upcoming titles were made unavailable on Steam and still remain unavailable on UK to this day. Now Ubisoft have added their games to EA's Origin storefront as well as their own Uplay store.

Ubisoft said that this decision isn't final and that they are in negotiations with Valve, but for the time being that their games will not be on the UK Steam store.

 

“We’ve been in discussions with Valve about Assassin’s Creed Unity but for the time being the game is not available via Steam in the UK,” Ubisoft said.

“In the meantime, UK customers wishing to purchase the game digitally can do so by visiting the Uplay store, our retail partners or other digital distributors.”

 

 

So right now Steam users in the UK are still without access to Ubisoft's big holiday trio; Assassin's Creed Unity which releases on on November 11, Far Cry 4 on November 21 and finally the MMO racer The Crew which will come on December 2nd.

Right now gamers in the UK can buy any of Ubisoft's upcoming releases on Uplay, Origin or GreenManGaming, it remains unclear why the Ubisoft games remain off Steam when when many US based sites report they returning. We will update this article as this story develops. 

 

Join the discussion on Ubisoft adding their games to EA's Origin on the OC3D Forums.

I notice some of the cd-key sites have Russian keys wondering if you can connect steam through a vpn to download the game on steam. otherwise I hope a lot of the UK get it from alternative free sites. Think I'd rather play candy crush over using uplay, origins not to badQuote

I use all 3 (Uplay, Steam and Origin) and I can easily say that Uplay is by far the worst. EA's Origin has gotten a lot better over time but my first choice is always Steam.

Hopefully Ubisoft can sort their stuff out and get these games back on Steam.Quote

I agree although i've had games on Steam that when I started up just opened UPlay anyway which I found super annoying.Quote

The thing is that most people use Steam by choice. If you want to purchase games in a store and play from disc, you can usually do that. Origin and Uplay are just shoved down your throat as you buy a game from that publisher.

I hate Origin too tbh. I always click the 'Remember me' checkbox at the log in screen, yet whenever I start Origin, I always have to log in manually again. And literally every. single. time. that I try to play a game on there it needs to update for 10 minutes first.

This news makes me think that Ubisoft have some issues with Steam? Cause they do put their games on the platform of the direct competitor (EA), but not on the platform that everyone prefers.Quote

It is likely due to the flat rate that Steam charges developers. Ubisoft want people to use Uplay so that they take the whole cut, it it likely that EA give better rates than Steam.

That being said this isn't the first time the UK got an AC game late on Steam for this same reason.Quote
