When Ubisoft announced in a post last month that third-person action RPG shooter “Tom Clancy’s The Division” would be delayed until 2015, the developer also promised it would unveil some pretty cool features at the Electronic Entertainment Expo next week.
“The Division,” which is currently being developed by three studios – Ubisoft Red Storm, Ubisoft Reflections and Massive Entertainment -- will be available for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC sometime in 2015.
“Working on ‘The Division’ is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for all of us at Massive, Reflections and Red Storm Entertainment,” the development team said. “We are creating something we are really proud of and we don't want to compromise on quality. We are going to release the game when it's ready.”
“The production is getting stronger every day and we can't wait to show you what we’ve been up to at this year’s E3,” the team added.
Will Ubisoft have more details regarding the game’s release date by next week? Though we’re hopeful, it isn’t likely. “Tom Clancy’s The Division” was originally slated for a release at the end of 2014, but we still weren’t given a specific launch date.
The game’s Snowdrop engine, the engine that will power the title, is a complex, interconnected and dynamic system, one that will run in real time and give developers a new rate of accuracy of speed when creating the title’s metropolitan setting. This is the first title that will feature the engine, which was designed to mimic film-production methods such as indoor and outdoor lighting and time of day.
This doesn’t mean “The Division” is the only project Ubisoft is working on. The developer will also reveal “Assassin’s Creed Unity” at E3 next week, which will only be a next-gen game.
"Set during the French Revolution, 'Assassin’s Creed Unity' unfolds during a time of unimaginable terror and unprecedented turbulence – the perfect backdrop for the ongoing battle between the Assassins and the Templars," Ubisoft said when describing the upcoming action-adventure. Ubisoft will also be giving demos of “Far Cry 4” and is promising the game will be the “most immersive and expansive game in the series ever.”
