Well, that's too much: Ubisoft criticized Valve due to policy on Steam

The latest Ubisoft games have bypassed Steam, having settled on the virtual shelves of Uplay and Epic Games Store. All the fault

Valve policy that asks developers30% of the income for placement in their store, while the "epic" take only 12%. Ubisoft has not commented on its position for a long time, but the company’s vice president broke the silence.

What is known

In an interview for The New York Times, Chris Earleyspoke about the policy of Valve. According to an Ubisoft employee, it’s time for Steam bosses to change their minds regarding revenue sharing, because in 2019 it does not look realistic.

“The business model they adhere to is not realistic. This does not reflect the actual state of affairs in terms of the distribution of games, ”Earley told Valve.

In addition, Ubisoft is glad that bypasses Steamside. At the last meeting, CEO Yves Guillaume said that working with Epic Games helped increase Uplay's audience. In addition, The Division 2 collected more pre-orders on the PC than the first part, so the experiment with the move was successful.
