Ubisoft's major titles, Assassin's Creed Unity, Far Cry 4 and the Crew will skip Valve's digital distribution platform in the UK, the publisher has confirmed.
Three of the biggest Ubisoft Games will not be released on Steam in the UK, remaining available only via Ubisoft's uPlay Store. The games will be published in the rest of the world as they should. An Ubisoft representative said the decision is not yet final.
"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.
"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." he told PCGamesN
As PCGamesN the issue revolves around Steam's Pricing brackets. Generally, Steam prices standard game versions under £40. In comparison, the PC digital version for Assassin's Creed Unity is available for £49.99 on Ubisoft's uPlay Store or other digital GreenManGaming.
All three games are going to be released in the holiday period this year. Assassin's Creed Unity comes to the UK on November 11 (November 13 in Europe and November 14 in the UL), followed by Far Cry 4 on November 21. Lastly, the Crew will be made available on December 2.
