Ubisoft Announces Its Return to Steam with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Ubisoft has officially announced to Eurogamer that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Anno 1800, and the free-to-play title Roller Champions will be coming to Steam.

In a statement to Eurogamer, a Ubisoft spokesperson said, “We’re constantly evaluating how to bring our games to different audiences wherever they are, while providing a consistent player ecosystem through Ubisoft Connect.”

“Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Anno 1800, and Roller Champions are among the Ubisoft titles that will be releasing on Steam”, it was said.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set to receive its last (and free) DLC on December 6.

Earlier this month, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was spotted in the Steam database, but when Insider Gaming asked for comment, Ubisoft said “we don’t comment on rumors and speculation”.

The update could also suggest that the next Assassin’s Creed title in the franchise, Mirage, could also be coming to steam. Ubisoft is currently developing six individual Assassin’s Creed titles; Mirage, Red, Hexe, Jade, Invictus, and Nexus.

In addition to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Project Orlando, Ubisoft’s new The Crew title was recently added to the database, too, suggesting that there could be a lot more games coming to Steam from Ubisoft in the near future.

In 2019, it was announced that Ubisoft will be moving its games to the Epic Store as the move would allow Ubisoft to keep 88% of its game sales earnings versus only 70% on Steam.

During the partnership announcement in 2019, Tim Sweeney, founder, and CEO of Epic said “We aim to provide the most publisher-friendly store, providing direct access to customers and an 88% revenue split, enabling game creators to further reinvest in building great games.”
