Ubisoft announces The Division 2


Ubisoft has announced that it is working on The Division 2.

In an announcement on Ubisoft’s website, Julian Gerighty, creative director at The Division developer Massive Entertainment, said: “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.

“Part of that means recognizing your commitment to The Division. With that in mind, we’re adding a new type of achievement called “Shields” to the game. Earning them will unlock special rewards in The Division 2 when it launches.” 

Gerighty took pains to point out that Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment will continue to support The Division: “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.”

And he added that The Division 2 will be properly unveiled by Ubisoft at this year’s E3 Show in Los Angeles in June. If any more news about the game emerges before then, we’ll bring it to you.
