Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 Officially Confirmed By Ubisoft
Tom Clancy’s The Division launched back in 2016 to generally positive reviews. Players and critics alike seemed to have enjoyed it, and it also performed well for Ubisoft. Now that we have arrived to the game’s second anniversary, the developer has decided to reveal something special: The Division 2 is coming.
In a letter to the fans, Massive Entertainment Creative Director Julian Gerighty wanted to give a rundown on what is in store for the franchise moving forward. In addition to the first title continuing to receive support, The Division 2 is also currently in development. Here’s what Gerighty had to say:
All of these new features and experiences have made our team better, too. We’re nimbler and better prepared to take action based on feedback. And now, more than ever before, we have a clear vision of what’s important and what continues to make The Division a special experience for so many people. Following our Year 2 anniversary celebration, we’re going to keep supporting that experience with new title updates that will bring new Global Events, Xbox One X enhancements, and more.
That said, we’ve always envisioned the story in the game we launched in 2016 as the beginning chapter in a larger saga, and today we’re excited to share more info about what’s next for The Division universe.
We’re thrilled to announce that we are working on Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, and that development will be led by Massive Entertainment in collaboration with Ubisoft Reflections, Red Storm Entertainment, Ubisoft Annecy, Ubisoft Shanghai and Ubisoft Bucharest. The Division 2 will be powered by an updated version of the Snowdrop engine that enables us to realize our ambitions for the sequel, but more importantly, we’re also taking everything we learned over the past two years and applying it towards the sequel to make sure we get it right.
In the letter, he also mentions a “new type of achievement called “Shields”” that will be coming to The Division. Players that earn them during play will “unlock special rewards in The Division 2 when it launches.” There’s no denying that fans will surely enjoy that feature. Speaking of which, the overall theme of the letter is to thank the fans. Julian finished with:
On behalf of all the teams at Ubisoft, we thank you for the support you’ve given us over the past two years, and we hope that our continued work will earn that support for many years to come. We can’t wait to show you what we have in store for The Division 2 at E3 2018 in June. See you then!”
