As many people will remember, Ubisoft pretty much stole E3 with one of the sharpest looking games of the next generation in the form of Tom Clancy‘s The Division which is set in a world where a virus broke out on Black Friday which eradicates humankind in just 5 days. The game revolves around the preppers; The Division which was designed to save what remains of Humanity in a huge MMO world.
This year, Ubisoft amazed the crowds with 2 next gen games which look astonishing and both have huge online components. These games were Tom Clancy’s The Division (An action, Role Playing Game) & The Crew (A Crew based Racing title). While The Crew was delayed until sometime in the first half of this year, The Division currently holds a placeholder date of Late 2014 however it looks like all that is about to change.
According to a recent report, The Division has been pushed back to a 2015 release with development on the game only just beginning after Ubisoft focused all their resources towards the highly impressive Snowdrop engine. Check out the Snowdrop engine trailer below.
As of right now, Ubisoft have declined to comment on the report. The Division is currently expected to release this year although if this report is real; expect that to change to next year.
