With Ubisoft announcing that it has partnered with Epic Games in selling The Division 2 digitally, it seems this has some unintended side effect to consumers. UK retailer GamesPlanet has released a memo today announcing that The Division 2 won’t be sold by third-party digital stores after its March 15, 2019 release as mandated by Ubisoft.
Sadly we have to announce you that Ubisoft will not allow digital third party stores, such as Gamesplanet, to sell Division 2 after its release on March 15th 2019. After this date, the game will digitally only be available through Ubisoft’s Store and another exclusive digital store. This will also be true for all upcoming game content such as Season Pass, Extensions, etc.
Take the opportunity to buy at Gamesplanet until March 15th 2019 and make use of the paysafecard promotion as this will be available until the game will be pulled from our stores.
We won’t be able to solve some support requests (e.g. key activated on the wrong Ubisoft account) after March 15th, as we won’t have any more keys to exchange/swap. Please address your support requests to Ubisoft directly for such cases.
Worry not, all purchases that have been completed on Gamesplanet will be honoured. This is also true for gifts, no matter if these have been picked up or not.
Obviously, we are not happy about this decision.
The Gamesplanet Team
Those who want to pick up The Division 2 outside of UPlay and the Epic Games Store, do it now before it’s pulled.
