Far Cry 5 was not available on Steam in New Zealand and other nations

Update – At time of writing this Far Cry 5 was not available in the following countries on steam. However this has been resolved.
Far Cry 5 is out now for PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. And while the console versions are available both at physical retail and digital storefronts, it appears that the PC version of Far Cry 5 has been pulled from Steam.
As of this morning, Far Cry 5 has been removed from sale on Valve’s storefront with the buy button for the game missing. The game was available for pre-order and has now been removed.
A quick check on Steam game tracker SteamDB shows that Far Cry 5 can’t be bought in New Zealand, India, China, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam, South Korea, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. This is odd considering that Far Cry 5 was available for pre-order in all of the aforementioned countries but Vietnam.
If you’re living in any of these countries, you can still buy the game via Ubisoft’s own Uplay service.
