The third-person RPG shooter The Division 2 takes up it’s release on the newly launched Epic Games store and the Ubisoft Store.

This isn’t the only platform to take up battle with the Steam giant recently, Discord also announced they will let developers receive 90% of the revenue on their digital game store front at the end of last year.
Not only does Ubisoft favour Epic Games when it comes this game release but also have partnered with them to bring future titles to the platform. While it is unknown at this point which games, this does show there it is becoming more apparent there is more choice when it comes to where you can buy PC digital games.
