XDefiant will not be available on Steam on release.

Will XDefiant release on Steam?

The answer to whether XDefiant is available on Steam is no. Ubisoft has no plans to release it on Steam either. If you want to play the open beta or the game on release, you’ll have to download it from the Ubisoft Connect client.

This might seem like a hassle, but there is no other way to play XDefiant on PCs. In the past, Ubisoft has released a lot of its games to Steam, but considering the fact that they are treating XDefiant as an exclusive, the chances are very low.
