You who play The Division 2 quite often, can you imagine what it would be like to be without venturing into the shooter since 2020? Well, according to creative director Yannick Banchereau, support for the game would end that year, but Ubisoft managed to find a way to extend the “life” of the game.
Banchereau, in an interview with the MP1st portal, revealed the existence of a plan where Massive developers would make the last update at the end of 2020, in update 12. Thus, the group would have more programmers taking care of other projects, such as Star Wars and Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. However, the situation was circumvented:
It wasn’t because The Division 2 was bad, we just needed people on other projects. It turns out that the game continued to be a success and even more accessed than expected after the release of Warlords of New York and the other seasons. This allowed us to follow up on conversations internally and we agreed to keep it online.
A PS5 port of The Division 2 is “unlikely”
The creative director also commented on the absence of a native version of The Division 2 for current generation consoles. According to him, delivering PS5 or Xbox Series editions would mean abandoning the PS4 and Xbox One communities. Understand here!
