Today, we have an important announcement from the development team of Tom Clancy's The Divisionfor you.

The past few years have been incredible for the team here at Massive ! When we started working on The Division , it was immediately clear to us that we had something very special here and something we really wanted to do right from the start. But we also knew that we would not be able to achieve this ambitious goal without your help.

Since the release of The Division 2 years ago, we have remained true to this philosophy. We have repeatedly used opportunities to interact with you. Be it via livestreams, polls or just social media. Also, the introduction of the Public Test Server was a way to immediately get feedback from you before we implement new extensive features or make changes to the game. We've never stopped striving to make The Division even better, and our recent update 1.8 is testimony to how we can see your overwhelming feedback and support.

All these new opportunities and experiences have also improved the team's internal processes. We have become quicker and can thus respond better to your feedback. But our vision of what matters to us and what makes The Division so memorable for so many people has never been clearer.

However, when 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 Enginethat 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.

- Julian Gerighty, Creative Director, Massive Entertainment


Looking forward to it, enjoyed the original and still enjoy dipping in now and then and just roaming about the city, still looks gorgeous to me.

I momentarily thought I'd fallen asleep for several years when I first read that.

I hope it's set during winter again, the atmospheric effects were superb and gave the original a really distinctive feel. Without that it'll be hard to stop it bleeding into Ghost Recon/Watchdogs generic urban shooter territory.

I think they should match the weather to the real-life seasons. Could be pretty cool for one of those long-term games.

Selfishly speaking I'd like them to add vehicles but I don't think the engine would cope with moving around that fast, and it'd turn it into quite a different game.

 

I was really keen to see The Division expand into new areas of NYC and I loved what they did with the Survival expansion, so would like to see more interesting modes and gameplay mechanics along those lines. 

 

But for a fully-fledged sequel, I'm not sure. It'd be nice if the gameplay allowed more than just cover shooting. There was nothing in the way of stealth or close combat, so there's potential there.

I don't really see the point of a sequel if it's just shooting increasingly armoured humans in New York again.

 

My prediction is that it'll be set in China this time around. 

How does increasingly armoured humans in Beijing sound?

I dunno, I reckon they might stick with NYC. My eyes water thinking how long it must've taken to create all those assets.

I don't see the point in a sequel to Mario Kart if it's just driving around increasingly difficult courses in the Mushroom Kingdom.

What do I need to buy if I want to play the original? Amazon have the base game for £10 but is the season pass mandatory by this point?

No, not at all. There's plenty of content in the base game, especially since the free 1.8 update (which I've not played). The only expansion I've played is Survival. I think it I was to buy the game again on Xbox, it's the only expansion I'd buy.

Mute City isn't in the Mushroom Kingdom.

God I hope not, that place is hardly as iconic as NYC apart from a couple of areas. I'll still play it though obviously. I'd like them to expand further up in to Manhattan and out in to the five boroughs so Queens and Brooklyn (where we started) at least.
