This decision was not an unexpected one as before The Division 2, Ubisoft did the same thing to some of its game titles. However, this partnership between Ubisoft and Epic does not stop there. They will work together for a few titles to come next year. And that is all we know by now, no other details on what these games are were revealed.

This association of the two companies helps paint a more accurate picture of the struggle of platforms to be the first exclusive store to host games for consoles.

Epic Games Store is growing to be a deadly rival to Steam as it has successfully snatched some game titles that players thought would be launched on Steam. A prime example was The Walking Dead: The Final Season’s second half.

Discord also joined the race as it announced its own store with an even more attractive percentage for developers than that of both Epic and Steam. The company is also doing well as it is making effort to win its own exclusive deals.

Besides PC, the new version of The Division will also compatible with PS4 and Xbox One. The expected launching date is the 15th of March.
