If you planned to purchase a key for The Division 2 on PC someplace other than Uplay or Epic Games Store, do it quick.
The Division 2 releases next week on March 15 and retailers have until that date to sell PC keys.
Ubisoft and Epic Games announced in January The Division 2 PC would be exclusive to Epic Games Store outside of the Ubisoft Store.
From now until release, various online retailer such as Amazon, Humble Store, Gamesplanet in the UK, and others still have games codes available for PC.
Be sure to shop around in case other online retailers are offering a discount.
Here’s the statement posted by Gamesplanet on the matter (thanks, resetera):
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
Set in Washington, DC this time out, The Division 2 features new specializations, a better loadout menu, the addition of settlements, eight-player raids, looting, quality-of-life improvements, and much more.
Again, it’s out on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One on March 15. Those who pre-ordered the game can now pre-load it for their respective system.
