Watch Dogs: Legion on Steam
Given that both Watch Dogs: 1 and Watch Dogs: 2 are available for purchase on Steam, players safely assumed Watch Dogs: Legion’s Steam release on launch was inevitable. But to everyone’s surprise, Ubisoft confirmed some time ago that Watch Dogs: Legion Steam release isn’t going to happen for the time being. The game is set to be at the very least a timed exclusive for the Epic Games store on PC. Steam Watch Dogs: Legion version is expected to arrive a year after this. This means that players will have to use the Epic Games Store to purchase it unless they want to wait a year or potentially even more.
Will Watch Dogs: Legion Be on Steam?
Yes, Watch Dogs: Legion will likely be on Steam sooner or later, but definitely not at the time of the game’s worldwide release. There haven’t been many official statements by the developers regarding why they chose to delay Watch Dogs: Legion Steam release and make it a timed-exclusive for the Epic Games Store. It is likely that Ubisoft made this call to encourage more players to use their own services as there have been a few Ubisoft games before this that weren’t immediately released on Steam.
While setting up an Epic Games Store account is quite easy and doesn’t require any extra money, most people would still wait for the game to release on Steam before they purchase it. If you’re one of these people, you’ll be sad to hear that there hasn’t been any sort of release date given for Watch Dogs: Legion on Steam. Everyone hoping to buy the game on Steam and add it to their library will have to wait for a while, as it looks like we likely won’t be getting Watch Dogs: Legion on Steam until 2021.
