I keep saying to myself that I should get back to Tom Clancy's The Division one day, but given my growing pile of shame, I'm far more likely to be playing the game's just announced sequel - The Division 2 - before that ever happens.
Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment broke the news today, ahead of a larger reveal coming at this year's E3 event in June. Details are slight, but here's what we know so far based on the brief announcement:
- Development will not stop on The Division just yet. "...we're going to keep supporting that experience with new title updates that will bring new Global Events, Xbox One X enhancements, and more."
- The game will be built around an enhanced version of the Snowdrop engine.
- Player feedback will be a major driver of the game's direction. "We're nimbler and better prepared to take action based on feedback."
- You can start getting ready for The Division 2 in the current game. "... we're adding a new type of achievement called "Shields" to the game. Earning them will unlock special rewards in "The Division 2 when it launches.
In the meantime, I guess we just have to wait.
