Ubisoft in talks to bring Assassin's Creed 3 and Far Cry 3 to Steam

Ubisoft is in discussion with Valve to bring Assassin's Creed 3 and Far Cry 3 to Steam in the U.K., the publisher told PCGamesN.

While the latest installment of the Assassin's Creed series hit European PCs yesterday, the game is still unavailable on Valve's digital distribution system.

"We've been in discussions with Valve about Assassin's Creed 3 and Far Cry 3, but for the time being the games are not available via Steam in the U.K.," said a Ubisoft representative.

"In the meantime, U.K. customers wishing to purchase either of these games can do so by visiting the Uplay store, our retail partners or other digital distributors. Assassin's Creed 3 and Far Cry 3 are available on Steam in other regions outside the U.K.."

Valve is yet to comment on why these titles were omitted from Steam.

In August of this year, Ubisoft's online services head Stephanie Perotti told PCGamesN the company has no plans to cutting ties with Steam, stating: "You can still find our games on Steam and we do not have any intention to change that. We believe in choice and we believe that it's normal to let the players and the consumers choose where they want to purchase their games."

Far Cry 3 is scheduled to release Nov. 29 in Europe, on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
