Ubisoft’s handling of its PC releases has been a source of annoyance for this niche of gamers for some time now, with the company temporarily ditching Steam releases and opting to only make its titles available through the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft. connect.

Despite having resumed the release partnership with Steam, it looks like two major releases from Ubisoft will come with nasty restrictions.

Massive Entertainment’s next big release, Star Wars Outlaws, will apparently be exclusive to Ubisoft Connect on PC when it launches next year. As noted by ResetEra user spad3, the Epic Games Store and (unsurprisingly) Steam are not mentioned as target platforms for the game on its official page on the Ubisoft website.

Interestingly, the same is also true for the upcoming open-world action-adventure title developed by Massive Entertainment, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, which also only mentions Ubisoft Connect for PC on its page.

We still don’t know if the abolition of releases on the Epic Games Store is a new policy that Ubisoft will adopt in the future, but it is worth noting that the Assassin’s Creed Mirage page specifically mentions the Epic Games Store, as well as The Crew Motorfest page, both scheduled for release this year.

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora launches on December 7th for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Star Wars Outlaws will release for the same platforms sometime in 2024.

And then, will we not have more releases on Steam?
