  • The Division 2 délaissera Steam pour Epic

Il semblerait que les arguments de l'Epic Games Store aient plu à Ubisoft, qui annonce aujourd'hui que Tom Clancy's The Division 2, à paraître le 15 mars prochain, sortira sur la nouvelle plateforme et non sur Steam.

"En tant que fans et que partenaires de longue date d'Ubisoft, nous sommes ravis de proposer quelques-uns des excellents jeux d'Ubisoft dans la boutique Epic Games ", dit Tim Sweeney, fondateur et PDG d'Epic.

Crée en 2003, Steam - propriété de Valve - est le leader incontournable des plateformes d'achat et de téléchargement de jeux vidéo sur PC. Son hégémonie est telle que la situation est qualifiée de quasi-monopole par ses critiques. En signe de contestation, plusieurs éditeurs ont choisi de lancer leur propre plateforme en criant haut et fort qu'ils ne ponctionneraient pas autant de commissions, c'était récemment le cas de l'Epic Game Store.

L'éditeur français va en effet privilégier son propre store, Uplay, mais aussi et surtout l'Epic Games Store.

La dirigeante a mis en garde dimanche sur la BBC contre les conséquences imprévisibles que pourrait avoir un rejet de l'accord. Les députés britanniques voteront le 15 janvier sur l'accord de Brexit , a déclaré mardi un porte-parole de Downing Street.

"Epic continue de bouleverser le paysage de l'industrie vidéoludique, comme en témoigne leur modèle de distribution destiné aux tiers, et Ubisoft tient à les soutenir dans cette démarche", a déclaré Chris Early, vice-président en charge des partenariats. Il ne prélève plus que 25% des revenus pour les jeux dont les ventes dépassent 10 millions de dollars, et 20% pour les jeux au dessus de 50 millions. Il développe le moteur de jeu Unreal Engine, utilisé sur des jeux populaires tels que "Rocket League", "Street Fighter V", ou encore le futur jeu "Yoshi's Crafted World" de Nintendo. Epic a créé une brèche, et Ubisoft vient de s'y engouffrer.

Epic Games a de grandes ambitions avec son magasin en ligne. Les éditeurs pourraient alors récolter 23% de revenus en plus sur Epic Games Store par rapport à Steam. Epic devrait toutefois sélectionner les jeux qui seront présents sur leur Store, contrairement à Steam qui ne met aucune barrière à l'entrée. Sorti sur Android en août 2018, "Fortnite" n'est pas disponible sur le Play Store, là-aussi pour éviter les commission prélevées par Google.
