Steam sans Ubisoft?

I have searching high and low for a definitive answer on whether or not Ubisoft has completely pulled their new titles from Steam EA style.

Does anyone have any insight on this? Decent sources are definitely preferred here as almost everything I have come across is "I read this here," and "this site said this back when."

The closest thing I have come across is an Ubi staffer commenting in forums for The Crew. In the thread he essentially says that they have no idea why that title has been dropped from Steam and that their team is working on it...

I am guessing it is not a huge deal that will affect my AC Unity pre-order, but you never know...

For the moment, its only affecting the brits, due to some horrible deal that Steam has with GAME

Rest of world can buy Ubicrap games as usuall, well.....atleast people who doesn't have a issue with double DRM, and the problems it brings with it

personally, im not touching Ubi titles untill they learn how to properly treat their customers

It seems to be getting even more confusing, too. While we all first read it would only effect the UK, now sites are saying the games are also pulled from the US, German and Brazil Steam stores.

I'm in the US and all three games are still on Steam here. Ubi may be having an issue with Valve's purported 30% cut for selling the games. That and some sites say it's over UPlay's pricing for DLC's. No doubt money's involved somewhere.

It is no longer just a British thing by any means. I can search AC all I want now, and I can no longer find Unity here in my part of 'murica.
@element5 - not that it matters much, but I'm in MN... where are you at?

Yeah, I was wondering the very same thing. I'm in Florida.

Think Regional updating accounts for this?

You can't find any of those three games?

Perhaps, but you are -5:00 GMT, and an hour ahead of me... one would think the update (even if time sensitive) would roll East to West.
What is really aggravating me about the whole deal is I cannot find an official anything on Steam's or Ubisoft's sites and/or forums.

I suppose this means conspiracy... time to go get my tinfoil hat...

Well, not finding anything in either of their own forums usually indicates they're still in the pizzing contest portion of negotiations and aren't yet commmitted to writing anything in concrete, so to speak.

I've closed the Steam browser and re-opened to let it update, too. Both FC4 and ACU even still appear in my Featured Spinner ads, too. I have to search for The Crew but it still pops up.

Only thing I'm sure of is I'm not sure of anything.

Okay, so I restarted and now it is in my spinner and appears in searches... just plain weird.

Now I really think it is time for the tinfoil hat and some other paranoid person equipment!
