Earlier this week the Windows PC versions of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Unity, The Crew and Far Cry 4 were no longer being sold through Valve’s Steam distribution service. But this morning they appear to have returned on the U.S. store. However, it’s unclear if the games have returned yet in other regions.

On Wednesday, Ubisoft told PCGames that it was “in discussions with Valve about Assassin’s Creed Unity” on Steam’s store, but offered no clear explanation for why the title nor the other two had been pulled. Today, you can hop onto the site and pre-purchase the new Assassin’s Creed for it’s Nov. 11 release. The Crew and Far Cry 4 are also both available for pre-order. Neither Ubisoft nor Valve responded to us for comment.

This isn’t the first time Ubisoft-published titles have been missing from Steam. In 2012, the PC versions of Assassin’s Creed 3 and Far Cry 3 were slow in coming to Steam in the U.K., despite being available in other regions. Valve and Electronic Arts clashed over how in-game downloadable content was sold the year prior, which led to Crysis 2 being removed from Steam for a while.
