There is bad news today for folks who have been waiting for Tom Clancy’s The Division, Ubisoft announced this title back at the E3 conference in 2013. Multiple Ubisoft teams are working on this project but it appears the extra help hasn’t been able to keep the release on track. It was confirmed today that Tom Clancy’s The Division has been delayed.
Ubisoft confirmed the delay during its financial earnings call today, Tom Clancy’s The Division is now expected to be released in Q4 of fiscal year 2016, which runs from January through March 2016.
The Division was originally intended to be released this year on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Earlier this month Ubisoft announced that it was bringing on another team to help with development, particularly with the multiplayer features of this title.
We now know for sure that the title is not going to be released before early 2016 so there’s no point in hoping that Ubisoft is going to have a change of heart.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said that while it’s never easy to move launch dates, “we are committed to make decisions that will benefit the players.”
One of the reasons why the title has been delayed is because Ubisoft wants enough time to ensure that enough feedback is received from gamers from alphas and betas before the title comes to market.
