More Ubisoft Games are Coming to Steam

In 2019, The Division 2 heralded Ubisoft's departure from Steam. Now, this game will come to Steam with yet another title.

Fight for Assassin's Creed: Valhalla achievements on Steam continue. Meanwhile, Ubisoft will soon make two more games from its catalog available on Valve's platform.

On Steam product cards have appeared for Tom Clancy's The Division 2 and Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game - Complete Edition. The former item will debut on the platform on January 12, 2023, almost four years after the original release. Meanwhile, the refreshed game adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's comic books, in the form of a brawler, will hit on Steam a week earlier (i.e., January 5, 2023).

Ubisoft has not boasted about the planned release of these games on Steam. No one is also unlikely to expect a big announcement for the "release" of several-year-old titles, and not on a new device or even off the publisher's platform. Both titles have also been available for purchase on Epic Games Store from the beginning.

Nonetheless, these "debuts" should please die-hard fans of Steam. Even if they are not interested in any of these games, their appearance is further proof that Ubisoft is returning to Valve's platform.

Recall also, that The Division 2 was one of the first Ubisoft games to have omitted Steam as a target platform. Therefore, the appearance of this title in Valve's store can be considered significant.

The question is whether, after so many years, there will be people willing to purchase these games. Especially since in the case of Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game - Complete Edition the advertised "network mode" reportedly doesn't work very well (via Reddit), and neither this game nor the second The Division so far do not have an achievement list on Steam.

He started with platformers, which he still dearly loves (including metroidvania), but he's also interested in card games (including 'analog'), brawlers, soulslike games and basically every other type of game. Don't ask about the graphics – after a few hours of exposition, he can be delighted with pixelated characters from games that remember the days of the Game Boy age (if not older).
