The Division 2 was already a popular title, but with the recent improvements for next-gen consoles, there has been a resurgence in the player community with March 2020 representing the highest total activity since launch. Today, Ubisoft Massive thanked the players with an infographic of accomplishments while commenting on future content.
The feats accomplished by the community are of course impressive, and put into perspective just how much time is spent defending Washington D.C. and New York City.
As for what’s next, Ubisoft commented on future content and the plans to continue supporting the title in the months ahead.
WHAT’S NEXT FOR THE DIVISION 2?
As announced a few weeks back, we have begun work on new content for The Division 2. The development of this content will be led by a group of project veterans at Ubisoft Massive. This will see Adrian Trasca and Yannick Banchereau staying at the helm of the project as producer and associate creative director. We are also excited to announce that the new content will be made with the support of a talented group of developers at Ubisoft Bucharest.
In the next major update, we are looking to bring a game mode that is entirely new to the franchise. Along with the game mode, we are investigating new ways to progress your agent with an emphasis on increasing build variety and viability. We will be revealing more about what lies ahead as the update gets closer.
The development of this new update is still in its early stages and will take several months to complete. As a result, our next major update is currently scheduled for release late 2021 at the earliest. We will be taking this time to make sure we bring a meaningful change to the game.
CADENCE FOR THE COMING MONTHS
While we’re hard at work on the next content update, we will re-run previous seasons released during Year 2. In other words, the next season (Season 5) will be a re-run of Season 1, giving you the chance to collect rewards and collectibles that you might have missed out on. This also means there will be regular Leagues and Global Events for you to participate in. On top of re-running seasons, we will continue to support the game with new Apparel Events and some minor Title Updates focused on game health.
Lastly, we want to provide you with an update on our State of the Game streams. Hamish Bode – our long-term host and one of the original architects of the State of the Game streams – has recently taken on a new role within Ubisoft, meaning that he will no longer be hosting the stream or be part of the stream setup. We want to take the time to congratulate Hamish and thank him for everything he has accomplished in his 7 years working on The Division, and we’re certain many of you will miss him as much as we already do!
Ubisoft quite frankly, has been tremendous with on-going support for their titles so it pleases us greatly to see the Massive team continuing to dedicate resources to The Division 2. We continue to love the game and will certainly be anticipating the new content in the future.
