Is Assassin’s Creed Valhalla going to be on Steam? This is a question that has been on the minds of many avid fans since the announcement of the game.
To answer your question, here’s what our game reporters know so far.
Is Assassin's Creed Valhalla Going to Be on Steam?
While the world waits for more information on Assassin’s Creed: Mirage and Infinity, and other projects codenamed Red, Jade, and Hexe, cybersleuths are digging into various platforms for more information regarding the availability of Valhalla on Steam.
Ubisoft has been conspicuously absent from Steam in recent years, preferring to release PC versions of its latest games through its Ubisoft Connect launcher and, on occasion, the Epic Games Store.
That appears to be changing, as two recent Ubisoft titles have been discovered in Steam’s  database. The first was published earlier this month.
Users discovered Assassin’s Creed Valhalla references in SteamDB, urging YoobieRE to datamine the Ubisoft Connect Launcher. They also found references to a new product ID listing that mentioned Steam, seemingly confirming an earlier Nvidia GeForce Now Leak that stated Valhalla would eventually be available on Steam.
Ubisoft has publicly criticized Valve’s Steam business model in recent years, which is why they have decided to collaborate with Epic Games instead. If this occurs, Valhalla’s “exclusivity” on the Epic Games Store is unlikely to be permanent.
This explains why rumors about the game’s Steam release persist. However, if Valhalla is coming to Steam, other Ubisoft games are likely to follow.
