Ubisoft games and Steam haven’t been together in quite some time now. Ubisoft like many other gaming companies made their own launcher and in doing so cut ties with Steam. But with the recent announcement of the Steam Deck that will attempt to bring PC gaming to mobile that may change. Could Steam Deck Ubisoft games be a thing?
Earlier today the CEO of Ubisoft Yves Guillemot was asked by an investor what his thought on the Steam Deck was while doing a Q1 earnings call. His response while not a %100 guarantee gave hope for Ubisoft games possibly being released on Steam Deck if the Steam Deck is big enough to handle the games.
“We’re happy to see Steam Deck coming to the industry, it shows that it continues a flow of very innovative new hardware coming to the market,” he said. “So we will look and see how big it becomes, but if it’s big we will be able to put our games on it.”
I think all fans of gaming would love to see Ubisoft games back on a Steam service and might even link back to possible Ubisoft games on the general Steam client. Obviously, that is very much not confirmed but is a nice thought at least. I like many others have high hopes for the possible Steam Deck Ubisoft games to come.
