Action role-playing game The Division is being prepared for another six months of special events and an upcoming successor.
No date was given for the arrival of The Division 2 but Ubisoft did alert fans to its intentions: 2018’s Electronic Entertainment Expo in June would provide an opportunity to show more details.
Like many of Ubisoft’s core action franchises — Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, and other entries to the Tom Clancy universe — The Division 2 will be a multi-studio effort, spearheaded by Sweden’s Massive Entertainment as before, with support from Ubisoft Red Storm in North Carolina, USA, Ubisoft Reflections in Newcastle, northeast England, and Ubisoft Annecy in the southeastern, Alpine region of France.
“Following our Year 2 anniversary celebration, we’re going to keep supporting that experience with new title updates that will bring new Global Events, Xbox One X enhancements, and more,” creative director Julian Gerighty explained in a post to Ubisoft’s central site, with those monthly global events subject to a little further detail on the game’s own hub.
In order to keep current and returning players engaged, The Division is introducing a new sort of achievement beginning with June’s update, and earning them will unlock special rewards in The Division 2 when it launches, the publisher promised.
