Ubisoft has just announced Tom Clancy’s The Division 2

It has just been announced by Ubisoft that developer Massive is now developing Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. As The Division was the fastest selling new IP in history, it’s no surprise that a sequel is happening.

Ubisoft have officially announced The Division 2

Ubisoft revealed that Massive has been developing The Division 2 for a while already. They’ll take into account the feedback from two years of near-constant changes to the The Division help build the sequel. The Division 2 will be developed using an updated version of the Snowdrop engine. In addition to Massive, a bunch of other developers are also helping to develop it. For example, Ubisoft Annecy, Redstorm, Reflections, Ubisoft Bucharest and Ubisoft Shanghai.

The Division 2

As The Division was a phenomenal success for Ubisoft, it must have been a very easy decision for them to green light the sequel.

So far no release date has been confirmed. My guess would be 2019 – roughly three years after the original was released. This would be approximately the same time frame as with Destiny 2 to Destiny.

More updates are also planned for The Division

And it looks like Massive won’t be neglecting The Division, either. Massive also announced plans for two more global events for the current The Division, as well as a 4K update for Xbox One X.

The Division has morphed from a title with a non-existent endgame to arguably having the best one in the looter landscape. If The Division 2 can learn from that and hit the ground running, it could be off to an amazing start when it’s released. It will also be interesting to see where the sequel takes the story. Will it still be set in New York or will it feature another area that was exposed to the plague? I’m hoping for the latter.

So, will you be adding The Division 2 to your watch-list? Or did you not really get on with the original? Please comment below and let us know.

    The Division was a game that piqued my interest when it dropped, provided me with hours of entertainment when I got it, and then all of a sudden it left me hanging for a year and a half while I waited for the content I was promised. I’ll probably be waiting to see how plays out before I go ahead and get myself a copy. I really hope Goobisoft pulls their heads out of their butts for this one, because the last one was a Massive (see what I did there?) disappointment to me.

    Yeah let’s hope Ubisoft learned from Bungie how to NOT make a sequel as well.
