Why can’t you play Far Cry 6 on Steam?

Epic Games Store or Uplay+ are the only ways to get hold of the game on PC with it confirmed some time ago that Far Cry 6 will not be added to Steam.

This is far from the first Ubisoft title to skip Steam with other recent big-hitters like Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and Watch Dogs Legion both being omitted from Valve’s PC gaming service too.

With Ubisoft having their own services for PC games, we cannot imagine this changing any time soon with future releases either.
