Shots have been fired today in the digital distribution platform war as Ubisoft shuns Steam in favour of Epic Games.
While the recently launched Epic Games Store hasn't had much trouble attracting smaller indie developers, this exclusive agreement on such a high-profile AAA title represents a serious coup over Steam.
Furthermore, it has been announced that Ubisoft and Epic will partner on "additional select titles" over the coming year.
The partnership will see PC version of The Division 2 available only on the Epic Games Store, and directly from Ubisoft.
Ubisoft confirmed that pre-orders placed on other platforms would be unaffected by the decision.
Epic is working with the publisher to integrate digital rights management software Uplay with its own online services.
With Epic taking only a 12% cut of sales -- compared to Valve's less generous tiered system with Steam -- it's become an attractive prospect for developers and publishers.
