To anyone concerned that Ubisoft would skimp on Tom Clancy’s The Division 2‘s campaign, we now know it will be longer than the first game’s.
In a recent interview with GamesIndustry.biz, managing director David Polfeldt discussed differences between the two Division games, starting it out with a marriage analogy.
“The first time you marry,” Polfeldt said, “you’re probably happy enough just to fall in love and see what happens. If you’re in your second marriage, you probably know a little bit more about what’s going to follow after the infatuation.”
From there, Polfeldt explained what this love means for the length of the sequel’s campaign.
“What are people going to enjoy after two years of playing the game? From there, you can work backwards towards the ‘falling in love’ part, which is actually what the campaign is—it’s just a long love story. In our case, I think it’s going to be longer than the first one,” he said.
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is slated to launch March 15th, 2019, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game recently had a gameplay trailer drop at Gamescom 2018, but the word “gameplay” might be a little generous.
