financial website called 4-Traders
has first details (in German) on
Ubisoft's plans for Tom Clancy's The Division 2
, a sequel to Massive
Entertainment's open-world first-person shooter (thanks
). The post is purportedly a blog update from Massive creative
director Julian Gerighty. It's not clear why this would appear on this site, but
lending a good deal of credibility to the report is the discovery of
this image on the Ubisoft Website
which is clearly a logo for The Division
2. Here is a rough machine translation of part of the post:
we released our game in 2016, it was clear to us that it was just the opening
chapter of a much bigger saga, so we're excited to share more with you today
about what awaits you in The Division Universe next.
We are very pleased to announce that we are currently working on Tom Clancy's
The Division 2 . The development is led by Massive Entertainment and driven by
close collaboration with Ubisoft Annecy, Redstorm, Reflections, Ubisoft
Bucharest and Ubisoft Shanghai. The Division 2 will be based on an updated
version of the Snowdrop Engine that will help us realize our ambitions for this
title. More importantly, we can also invest all the experience we've accumulated
over the past two years in this sequel to make sure everything is going well.
But that is not all. The division continues. After the celebrations of our 2
year anniversary, we will support the game with 2 more title updates. These will
be 2 brand new Global Events; Include more Legendary difficulty missions and an
Xbox One X update that will rediscover the beautiful and emblematic New York
City with all its stunning details in both 4K and 1080p.
In addition, as of June 2018, players will also be able to play 'Crests', which
are specific achievements that will allow them to unlock The Division 2 rewards.
The teams are extremely grateful for all the support over the past two years and
we can not wait to show you what we have planned for The Division 2 during the
E3 2018 in June.
