The next publisher will return to the Valve store?
It looks like Ubisoft is planning to launch Assassin’s Creed Valhalla in the PC version also on Steam. This release was mentioned in the Ubisoft Connect application files.
The entry was revealed in the unpacked program files. On the other hand, we may be dealing with plans from the past – the release on the Valve store was already mentioned in September last year, when the title appeared in a leak from the GeForce Now database.
Another theory is that the release on Steam will take place when all the DLCs for the game are released. The last – under the telling title The Last Chapter – should debut later this year, ending Eivor’s story for good. Soon – on November 10 – it will be two years from the premiere, which may be an ideal opportunity to announce details.
“They are waiting for an opportunity to re-release the game at full price,” comments one player on Reddit. “Let’s hope this is good news for Steam Deck owners. I keep my fingers crossed for The Division 2 as well, ”adds another, slightly less cynical person. “If Valhalla comes out on Steam with the achievements, I buy it right away,” notes someone else.
You can guess that even after the release on the Valve Store, you would still need a Ubisoft Connect account as it was in the past with games from a French publisher. If the premiere took place, the company would be the next – after Electronic Arts and Activision – that has recently decided to return.
