They probably also lost some sales by no longer using steam.

I agree; In part.
I'm sure someone did the calculation on the additional sales from all the new platforms. Lets face it. Next year E3 will be about the hardware and new games on the hardware. I'm sure Ubisoft wants to tie as many of their titles to that new hardware in addition to the large user base on existing hardware.
