Ubisoft games are returning to Steam

SteamDB listings... don't lie?

Original story [16 November]: Ubisoft looks like it’s preparing to return to Steam, bringing a host of its titles to the PC platform.

Datamined store details show titles like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Roller Champions look set to become available on Steam.

First, a Steam version of Valhalla was spotted inside Ubisoft Connect’s own database; the title is currently available through that specific Ubisoft launcher or via the Epic Games Store.

Next, Roller Champions briefly appeared on SteamDB; access to the free-to-play title through Steam is certainly one way to attempt to bolster player counts.

Ubisoft hasn’t officially announced a move back to Steam; we’ll keep you posted as we learn more.

Update: Ubisoft has today confirmed it will bring its games back to Steam.

Up first is Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on 6 December, followed by titles like Anno 1800 and Roller Champions.

“We’re constantly evaluating how to bring our games to different audiences wherever they are, while providing a consistent player ecosystem through Ubisoft Connect,” Ubisoft said, announcing the change.

Roller Champions is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5 and Switch. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4 and PS5.
