Tom Clancy’s The Division has been delayed to a 2015 release window, Ubisoft announced today.
“Working on The Division is a once in a lifetime opportunity for all of us as Massive, Reflections, and Red Storm Entertainment,” the development team wrote in a post on the game’s official website. “We are creating something we are really proud of and we don’t want to compromise on quality. We are going to release the game when it’s ready.”
The Division, first announced and revealed during Ubisoft’s E3 2013 press conference, was originally scheduled to launch on PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PC later this year
The post did mention, however, that The Division will still have a presence at this year’s E3, presumably in the form of new footage—though many at EGM are hoping for a little hands-on time.
Last month, Massive’s managing director David Polfeldt expressed to Examiner how he and his studio were reassured by the Watch Dogs delay. “It takes so much courage to live through that day and still think that was a good decision,” Polfeldt said. “For us in the development [side of things], that’s an important message that ultimate the management will back up the goals that we have, which is the game has to be great.”
Earlier today, Ubisoft revealed that Far Cry 4 would arrive this fall, filling The Division’s vacancy.
