Ubisoft games pulled from Steam
The upcoming best seller games for Ubisoft have been pulled from Valve’s Steam store for an unannounced reason. The games include Far Cry 4, Assassins Creed Unity and The Crew. Ubisoft as well as Valve are yet to make any statement on the removal of the upcoming triple A titles.
It is still unsure if pre-orders will be processed through Steam or if Ubisoft will hold all control through their own digital distribution software, U-Play.
With more big publishing companies such as Ubisoft and EA producing their own digital distribution platforms the removal of such titles may become more common with the upcoming releases.
David DeMarini, an Executive over at EA said “We take direct responsibility for providing patches, updates, additional content, and other services to our players” in regards to EA pulling games from Steam back in 2011. “Unfortunately, if we’re not allowed to manage this experience directly and establish a relationship with you, it disrupts our ability to provide the support you expect and deserve”.
