Several upcoming titles are not headed to Steam.
A list of Ubisoft studios and release platforms for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora that indicates the game won't be released outside of Ubisoft Connect on PC.

Remember how in November 2022, Ubisoft made this big return to Steam? Since the initial release of Assassin's Creed Valhalla on Valve's platform, Ubisoft released several other newer titles. It looked like Ubisoft was playing a bit of catchup with releases on Steam after several of these titles enjoyed long exclusivity periods on the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft's own storefront, Ubisoft Connect.

With this trickle of Ubisoft releases finding their way to Steam over the past several months, you kind of got the feeling like Ubisoft was back on Steam for good. You also expected that Ubisoft's future PC releases wouldn't be locked to just one PC storefront for any amount of time.

How stupid we all were.

According to a new report from, several upcoming Ubisoft titles will be sold exclusively through Ubisoft Connect or through both Ubisoft Connect and Epic Games Store. The struggling studio is once again ignoring the largest PC-focused storefront when it comes to day-and-date releases of its newest titles.

The report from DSOGaming says that both Star Wars Outlaws and Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora will be completely exclusive to the Ubisoft Store. They cite the official websites for both of these titles where only Ubisoft Connect is listed for the PC platform.

Similarly, it was also noted that both The Crew Motorfest and Assassin's Creed Mirage will be sold only through Ubisoft Connect and Epic Games Store.

DSOGaming's report suggests that these games may hit other storefronts at a later date. That is to say that Star Wars Outlaws and Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora will be timed exclusive releases on Ubisoft Connect. And that The Crew Motorfest and Assassin's Creed Mirage will be timed-exclusive releases on Ubisoft Connect and Epic Games Store before possibly coming to Steam months or years later.

Whatever the case ends up being, this whole exclusivity thing is BS. Releasing only on your own platform? Fine. That makes sense. But to continue releasing on your own platform and Epic Games Store but not also on Steam at the same time? Inexcusable.
