Ubisoft and Huge Leisure have confirmed right this moment that The Division 2 will obtain extra content material this 12 months, doubling down on statements made by Ubisoft’s CEO earlier this week throughout a name with traders.
The present season of The Division 2 is known as “End of Watch” and wraps up a storyline and character arc that started all the best way again within the first sport. That truth, together with information of Division 2 developer Huge engaged on a giant new Star Wars game, led many gamers to take a position that the newest replace, Title Update 12, was the final deliberate content material replace.
It seems these gamers had been appropriate. However since then, plans have modified. Huge introduced right this moment on Twitter and Reddit that TU12 was certainly the deliberate remaining replace for the sport, however that the studio is now altering course. It would launch extra content material later this 12 months, however had no extra particulars to share at the moment.
“At the moment, we’re thrilled to substantiate that there can be extra content material for The Division 2 launched later this 12 months! It’s your steady ardour and assist which allows us to proceed to construct upon The Division 2 expertise, and we can not thanks sufficient for that.”
Information of extra Division 2 content material was first vaguely introduced by Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot earlier this week. During a February 12 call with investors, he mentioned Huge would work with different Ubisoft studios collectively on the collection. “You’re going to see extra on The Division on this 12 months and the 12 months after,” mentioned Guillemot. At the moment’s announcement from Huge specifies that gamers can look out for extra Division 2 content material and never some huge new sequel from the looter-shooter franchise. Past that although, Huge’s announcement is imprecise and doesn’t actually clarify what sort of content material can be added or when, past later this 12 months. Nearly as in the event that they too didn’t know there was going to be extra content material till Guillemot declared it.
I don’t anticipate a Warlords of New York-sized DLC to be launched this 12 months, however as a substitute extra seasons of content material with small new missions, and a few new weapons added each few months. Not tremendous thrilling, however for followers of The Division 2 not less than the sport isn’t useless.
