All Major Ubisoft Titles Pulled From Steam Globally

By   /   Nov 7, 2014

We reported yesterday on some rather unexpected news when all major games of Ubisoft were pulled off of Steam UK.

If you couldn’t figure out why, hear this: all major titles of Ubisoft have now been yanked from Steam globally. So yeah, that huge banner advertising Assassin’s Creed Unity all over the Steam homepage is nowhere to be seen now.

The games that have disappeared include the new Assassin’s Creed title, The Crew and Far Cry 4. When their games were pulled from Steam UK specifically Ubisoft had issued a statement confirming the removal:

We’ve been in discussions with Valve about Assassin’s Creed Unity but for the time being the game is not available via Steam in the UK.

It looks like whatever discussions they were having, have actually worsened the situation. To make the matters even more interesting, all the games that disappeared from Steam have emerged on Valve’s competitor, EA.

Yes, you can now see all the aforementioned titles being offered on Origin alongside some of the older titles like Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed 3 and Far Cry 3.

Oh and the removal from Steam and the arrival on Origin happened at almost the same time. We are not sure why the step has been taken as such big names should obviously matter to even Valve and why would Ubisoft jump ship now?

Neither companies have commented on the decision so far, but the rest assured we will keep you updated as soon as something comes up.

Assassin’s Creed Unity releases on November 11, Far Cry 4 is slated for November 18 and The Crew is supposed to go live on December 2.
