On a German traders website, the Creative Director of Massive Entertainment, Julian Gerighty, has confirmed that The Division 2 is in development. The website doesn’t give too much information about when we will get to see any information, or when the game will be released, but good to know that the development has progressed to the point that they are at liberty to start talking about it.
The website is in German, but luckily Google translate can give us an idea of what is said here.
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.
There were more news to come as well. Julian Gerighty continues to talk to what they are planning for The Division in the future as well.
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.
It’s safe to assume that more information and potential views on The Division 2 will be shown at E3 this year.
