Ubisoft officially announced that the release of Tom Clancy's The Division will be moved to the first quarter of 2016. It is yet another delay of this title, although this time it’s rather a further specification of a date announced earlier. Three months ago the French company revealed the fact that Tom Clancy's The Division will debut in the current financial year, which covers the period from April 1, 2015 to March 31, 2016. What happened is therefore what many players had been expecting, because after such a piece of information few people counted on this year's release of this quite anticipated production. Let’s not forget that after the first announcement of the game it was assumed that it would launch as soon as in 2014. Since then, some things have changed and apart from the initially confirmed versions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the plan was disclosed to release the title on PC as well.
Further delays of Tom Clancy's The Division are not surprising, as it is one of Ubisoft's most important projects in recent years. It’s a new franchise, and there are four development teams working on it: Ubisoft Massive, Ubisoft Reflections, Red Storm Entertainment and Ubisoft Annecy. The French publisher counts on the warm reception of this production, especially since the last year's hits (most notably, Assassin's Creed Unity) have been the spource of much controversy related to their unsatisfactory technical level and numerous problems after the premiere.
Tom Clancy's The Division is an online action RPG with an open world that can be freely explored. The story is set in the near future when a pandemic breaks out in New York, and authorities are unable to deal with the situation. In the face of growing chaos, the titular agency takes matters into its own hands; the players assume the roles of its members. Tom Clancy's The Division will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
