Assassin’s Creed 3 is out now on PC, but the Steam version is nowhere to be found on Valve’s UK store front. The same fate will befall Far Cry 3 when it launches next week, and publisher Ubisoft is currently in talks with Valve to remedy the situation.

Speaking with >PCGamesN a Ubisoft rep issued a statement that read, “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 UK.

“In the meantime, UK 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 UK.”

No reason was given but those looking to keep their game collection in one place on Steam may be in luck yet. Ubisoft also stressed that the absence of both games from doesn’t signify that the publisher is removing its games form the service in a bid to force customers to its UPlay store.

Ubisoft’s online services head Stephanie Perotti told the site back at Gamescom, “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.”
