Two years have passed since Ubisoft first released The Division, its combination of survival, warfare and MMO style design. To mark that anniversary, the French gaming giant has announced that a sequel is, in fact, in the works, and that it will once again run on Massive Entertainment’s own Snowdrop Engine. They aren’t the only ones working on this follow-up, however, as Ubisoft Annecy, Ubisoft Shanghai, Reflections, Redstorm and Ubisoft Bucharest are also lending a hand.
“The Division 2 will be based on an updated version of the Snowdrop Engine that will help us realise our ambitions for this title,” said Creative Director Julian Gerighty. “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.”
If you’re worried that this announcement means that Ubisoft is dropping support for the first game, you needn’t. To mark this noteworthy milestone, they’ve announced even more content, in the vein of several new global events, more legendary missions, Xbox One X enhancements and a couple of title updates. June will also bring ‘Crests’ to the title, with those being in-game goals that can help one unlock rewards in its upcoming sequel.
The Division 2‘s full reveal is scheduled for E3.
