In response to online discussion and a petition that garnered more than 140,000 supporters, Massive Entertainment, a subsidiary of Ubisoft (EPA:UBI), announced on Tuesday that their upcoming online multiplayer third-person tactical shooter video game “Tom Clancy’s The Division” will come to the PC platform this winter.
In an announcement video released by Fredrik Rundqvist, the executive producer behind “Tom Clancy’s The Division,” told viewers, “Since E3 we’ve been carefully listening to what’s been said on the Internet.”
He continued, “One of the most frequently discussed topics was releasing ‘The Division’ on PC. With that in mind, I’m very proud to announce that the game will be available on PC. Massive Entertainment has its roots in PC development with titles like Ground Control and World in Conflict. You can be certain that we will provide you with a first-rate PC experience.”
“Tom Clancy’s The Division” was announced and revealed in June during the E3 Expo in Los Angeles. The game was announced to be available for next-gen consoles, which include the Xbox One and the PS4. However, the company didn’t necessarily rule out the possibility of “Tom Clancy’s The Division” coming to PC.
“I think Ubisoft as a company considers maximizing the potential of a game,” he said. “So if the audience and the desire is there,” said an Ubisoft spokesperson to IGN.
Massive Entertainment is known for several video games including “Ground Control,” “World in Conflict” and “Far Cry 3.”
“Tom Clancy’s The Division” is scheduled to be released in winter 2014 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
