Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is finally coming to Steam in December

  • November 21, 2022

Two weeks after the discovery of backend data (opens in new tab) that pointed to Ubisoft returning to Steam, it is now official: The comeback will begin with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (opens in new tab), which will debut on the storefront on December 6.

Outside of its own online store, Ubisoft has been an Epic exclusive publisher on PC since early 2019. That’s kept big releases including The Division 2, Far Cry 6, Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Extraction, and of course Valhalla off of Steam, which is by far the most popular digital storefront for PC gamers. As we noted when the likelihood of a Ubisoft return first came to light earlier this month, it was an unusual situation: Epic Games Store exclusives generally tend to be for a year, or less in some cases, yet Ubisoft appeared content to make the arrangement indefinite. That’s why this Steam comeback is a pretty big deal.
