Ubisoft Massive has announced a major change that will be made to the development model of the online shooter Tom Clancy's The Division 2.

  1. Each season will last four months, a month longer than before.
  2. The next season, the second in the game's fifth year of development, will launch in October.
  3. The extension of the seasons to four months is expected to ensure that in addition to preparing new content, the devs will also be able to make needed technical improvements in parallel.

Development of The Division 2 is of crucial importance to fans of the brand, as all indications are that there are currently no plans for a third installment. This is not surprising, as Ubisoft Massive is now busy with two big projects in the form of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and Star Wars: Outlaws. There are also spin-offs in the pipeline, in the form of Tom Clancy's The Division: Heartland and the mobile Tom Clancy's The Division: Resurgence, but these are much more modest positions than the main installments of the series.

Recall that Tom Clancy's The Division 2 launched in March 2019 on PC and Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles. The PC version was available for many years only on Ubisoft Store and Epic Games Store, but in January this year it finally made its way to Steam. Initially, the game was received quite coldly on Valve's store, but recently the sentiment of gamers towards The Division 2 has improved - while among all reviews on Steam only 66% are positive, which is categorized as a "mixed" reception, counting only those from the last 30 days, 77% praise the shooter.
