It appears that the rumours regarding the delay of Ubisoft’s eagerly anticipated next-gen title, The Division were sound. The developers confirmed today that the title would be available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC in 2015, contrary to earlier impressions suggesting that the game would be available this year.
In their update to fans, Ubisoft stated that they did not want to “compromise on quality” and that the Division is a “once in a lifetime opportunity”. No specific release date has been suggested and Ubisoft have vaguely stated that the game will be released “when it’s ready”.
In all fairness, we suspected that the title would be delayed until next year, and considering just how impressive The Division is shaping up to be, we would rather the game be delayed than rushed and not live up the incredible potential the game has. It is one of our most anticipated titles and one that truly strikes us as a next-gen game. Stay tuned for further updates regarding the game.
