Ubisoft’s PC games are starting to come back to Steam next month. On December 6, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Anno 1800, and Roller Champions will be available on the PC storefront.
A Ubisoft representative wrote in a statement to Eurogamer:
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.
Ubisoft stopped putting its PC games on Steam back in 2019 in favor of placing them on its own PC launcher as well as the Epic Games Store. Some of Ubisoft’s last releases on Steam were Trials Rising, Far Cry New Dawn, and Starlink: Battle for Atlas.
It’s possible that more Ubisoft titles could make their way toward Steam in the future. But for right now, the aforementioned three are the only ones confirmed so far. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will also receive its final DLC update in December, the same day it becomes available on Steam.
It’s unknown whether upcoming Ubisoft games will come to PC via Steam on release day. Assassin’s Creed Mirage is listed to have a PC release, but Steam doesn’t have a page up for it while the Epic Games Store does.
