To wrap up last gaming week, Ubisoft held a stream revealing what’s next for The Division franchise. With The Division 2 receiving its fifth year of updates, many were wondering if the original versions of the game would make it to the Xbox Series X/S and PS5 consoles. However, Ubisoft says such a move is unlikely.
Speaking to MP1st, The Division 2 creative director Janik Banchereau explained that due to the fact that the majority of the player base is still on Xbox One and PS4, Ubisoft doesn’t want to port the game to next-gen consoles, as that would affect support to the previous generation.
“We still have many players who play on all generations and we are not ready to leave them behind and ask them to upgrade,” says Janik. “Right now we’re trying to make sure that every time we add something, it still works smoothly on the old generation.”
If you’re looking for a next-gen The Division experience, then you’ll probably be waiting for The Division 3, if there’s ever a big sequel. Currently, in addition to continued development on The Division 2, Ubisoft is also working on a mobile spin-off, as well as one for PC and consoles.
