Ubisoft outlined its plans to develop The Division franchise. Among them was the announcement of a new game titled Tom Clancy's The Division Heartland. It will be a free-to-play game that will expand the universe presented to the players in 2016, when the first installment of the series launched. At the same time, it is aimed not only at fans of the franchise. To play, you will not need knowledge of previous installments of the series.
Heartland will be developed by the team at Red Storm. The team has already worked on many titles signed by the name of Tom Clancy. For now, it is not known what exactly its new project will be. It is reported that the game is to take us to the unknown regions of The Division universe. It is also known that the release is scheduled for 2021 or 2022. The game will be coming to PC and the last and current-gen consoles. Registration for closed tests has already started.
In addition, Ubisoft has informed about its ambitious plans for the development of The Division franchise. First of all, the second installment of the series will receive additional content, which will soon see the light of day. It will include, among other things, a completely new game mode. The release of the next expansion is scheduled for the second half of this year.
In addition, the studio intends to port The Division to mobile platforms. However, it was not revealed what this particular project will consist of. There are also plans to publish a novel set in the game's universe, which will expand the story of agents facing the challenges of a world engulfed by chaos.
Ubisoft also reminded us of the work on the game's screen adaptation. Created in collaboration with Netflix, the adaptation is still one of the studio's on-going projects. In the film, we will see Jessica Chastain and Jake Gyllenhaal. Rawson Marshall Thurber is responsible for the direction.
