Why Did The Division 2 Switch To The Epic Games Store? Ubisoft’s CEO Reveals!

Yves Guillemot, the CEO of Ubisoft, explained why The Division 2 has swapped platforms from Steam to Epic Games Store.

„There are a growing number of distribution platforms fighting for great content. With this deal [with Epic Games], we saw an opportunity to increase player exposure to our own store while at the same time supporting a partner that greatly values our games and provides better terms. Early indications are supportive, as PC pre-orders [for The Division 2] are higher than for the first Division, and pre-orders on the Ubisoft store are six times higher. We believe this deal is a long-term positive for Ubisoft,” Guillemot said.

The Division 2‘s closed beta had players spend an average of 5+ hours in it, and it seems that the jump to Epic Games Store is because of money, proven by Guillemot when he pulled out the pre-order statistics on PC.

The Division 2 is out on March 15 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
