Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 Not Releasing On Steam, PC Requirements Revealed

Remember the game that came out in 2016 riddled with an absurd amount of bugs? Yep, I’m talking about the game that Massive Entertainment, Ubisoft Reflections, Red Storm Entertainment, Ubisoft Annecy, and FreeStyle Games churned out that enabled folks to cheat in Dark Zones and dupe items to become tyrants of New York. Well, the second iteration unlike the first will not head to Steam.

Personally, I don’t care what Ubisoft does with The Division 2 since the first game had more issues at launch than a troubled child, and The Division 2 looks like a DLC expansion to the first title and not like an actual game.

Anyway, folks interested in the second title and wishing to boot it up on Steam will find that that is not possible. Yes, over on epicgames.com we learn the following information:

“Ubisoft and Epic Games are partnering to bring Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 to the Epic Games Store. Players worldwide can now pre-order the Standard, Gold, or Ultimate editions of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 on PC at epicgames.com, guaranteeing their access to the game’s upcoming Private Beta.

 

The Division 2 on PC also will be available for purchase online from the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store following the release of the game.

 

Ubisoft and Epic will work to integrate key components of Ubisoft’s Uplay and Epic’s online services to provide gamers from both ecosystems with more seamless social features and interoperability.”

In other words, if you want to play the second game that acts like DLC, you will need the Epic Games Store or the Ubisoft Store to play the 2019 sequel to the 2016 game by Massive Entertainment and crew.

Anyway, for those on PC looking to play this game or for those just curious what specs Ubisoft expects adopters to sport it consists of minimum, recommended, high, and elite. These specs will let you know what CPU, the amount of RAM, video RAM, OS and so on needed to play the forthcoming game. Of course, this information comes from news.ubisoft.com.
