More Additions to the Universe
Tom Clancy’s name has echoed in the gaming industry since 1998 when he co-founded Red Storm Entertainment which was later acquired by Ubisoft Entertainment. Tom Clancy’s video games have been known to provide gamers with fresh, tactical experiences in shooters and has most certainly marked its position in the industry with titles such as Rainbox Six, now made incredibly popular by Rainbow Six: Siege, Ghost Recon and the Splinter Cell universe, whose fans are begging for another release since its last in 2013. The Division was introduced to the world in 2016 and can be aptly described as a looter-shooter developed by Massive Entertainment, with assistance from Red Storm Entertainment. The Division took players, or rather agents of the Division, on a journey through dystopian New York City in the aftermath of the smallpox pandemic where they were tasked with rebuilding the city and fending off threats. The game comprised of RPG elements and had a strong PVP game mode. Division 2 as a sequel improved upon Division 1 and was set in Washington D.C. Following the release of its expansion, Warlords of New York in 2020, Division 2’s population became the most active in the game’s history.
Alaine Corre, Executive Director of Ubisoft EMEA, made major announcements today concerning The Division’s universe. The company has announced that Heartland, a stand-alone game set in the universe, is in development by Red Storm Entertainment and will provide a whole new setting and experience for players. The game will be available in 2021 or 2022 on PC, consoles and clouds. However, the universe is set to expand even further as The Division will officially be coming to mobile platforms! Further details on that announcement is sure to come later this year.
If fans of the universe are still somehow unhappy, The Division film is in development in conjunction with Netflix via Ubisoft Film & Television. The movie is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber and will star Jesse Chastain and Jake Gyllenhaal. The movie will be inspired by events of The Division 1.
