Ubisoft comments on the possibility of a sequel for The Division
The Division’s recent 1.8 update has proven to be a sort of strong second wind for the MMO-esque shooter that Ubisoft originally launched back in March 2016, and recent comments from the game’s Managing Director David Polfeldt seem to suggest that a proper sequel is being considered, but Ubisoft also knows how much fans enjoy being invested in a game as unique as The Division.
Speaking with IGN in a recent interview, Polfeldt said that there is naturally potential for a proper sequel to be made, but for now Ubisoft doesn’t want to commit to anything wholly, especially since the original The Division has never been in a better place than it’s in now:
“I think it's a wonderful, wonderful brand that has so many potential stories in it. There are a lot of things that we didn't do in The Division 1 that are interesting to look at for that brand. I definitely think there's lots of space for continuation which is beyond just keeping The Division online. But...I can't talk about that too much right now.”
How much consideration Ubisoft has given to a Division sequel isn’t clear at this point, but if a sequel is on the docket, it likely won’t come around for a while if the fans have their say.
