The Division Looks Unlikely For 2015
It looks like we will be unable to play Ubisoft’s The Division next year. 😦
An insider told Gamereactor “We’ve been given increased resources, we’re hiring lots at the moment and are given a lot of help from other Ubisoft teams which is going to be needed if we are to deliver a finished game by next fall. Sadly I still think that the date is a tad bit optimistic as we still don’t have a functioning game and still have massive problems making our multiplayer component work at the concept stage. At the same time both we and our publisher are incredibly happy with our game engine and Ubisoft will naturally make use of it in lots of upcoming titles.”
A bit of a blow to the team at Massive. The problem is that this is not just a couple of months, this is a full year away. Why was it announced back at E3 2013?! I do hate it when a game is announced way before a concrete release date is given. A game should be announced and released a few months after that. It keeps the hype for the game going.
The insider went on to say. “At the end of the day we don’t want to do a Battlefield 4 and release an unfinished game. There’s too much potential in the concept that is The Division at the moment, that we’ve asked for more time and resources in order to fully realise this fantastic vision.”
