Ubisoft fully revealed Tom Clancy’s XDefiant earlier this week to a rather mixed response (at least if the Like/Dislike ratio on the videos is to be believed). Its first closed test will take place on August 5th and a full launch is a ways off. However, it seems that the free to play competitive FPS will be limited to Ubisoft Connect when it releases for PC.

A representative for the company told PC Gamer that, “As of now, the game will be on Ubisoft Connect once it’s fully out. There are discussions on other stores having the game post-launch, but nothing has been determined as of yet.” It’s interesting especially given how much support Ubisoft has given to the Epic Games Store in recent years. Along with Uplay/Ubisoft Connect, games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Immortals: Fenyx Rising, Ghost Recon Breakpoint and The Division 2 have only been purchasable through Epic’s storefront.

Granted, Ubisoft’s launcher is still needed for playing even if the game is purchased through Epic. Perhaps the publisher is restricting Tom Clancy’s XDefiant to Ubisoft Connect to gauge its success before expanding to other storefronts (and having to share revenue with others). Time will tell so stay tuned.

Tom Clancy’s XDefiant is currently slated to release for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC and Google Stadia. It will support cross-platform play at launch.
