The Division announced for PC


Ubisoft has announced plans to release Tom Clancy's The Division on PC, in addition to the previously confirmed Xbox One and PS4 versions.

Ubisoft Massive Entertainment executive producer Fredrik Rundqvist notes in the video above that the studio has been following community demand for a PC version of the action RPG. "I'm very pleased to announce [The Division] will be available on PC," he says. "Massive Entertainment has its roots in PC development with titles like Ground Control and World in Conflict; you can be certain we will provide you with a first rate PC experience."

During Microsoft's pre-Gamescom press briefing today, it was also announced that exclusive content for The Division will be available on Xbox One “before and after” the game's release, suggesting there may be a multiplayer beta as well as post-launch DLC. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has said that The Division release date will fall "closer to the end of 2014 than the beginning".

The Division is set in New York three weeks after a lethal manmade virus has brought the city to its knees. Players take on the role of agents from The Division, a classified unit trained to operate independently of command and battle to prevent the collapse of society. With amazing visuals, a massive open-world and dynamic PVP, we came away highly impressed after seeing the title in June. So much so, in fact, that we named it ‘Best game we're worried might be cancelled’ in our GamesRadar E3 2013 awards.

    correct me if i'm wrong but didn't tom clancy games start on pc? i mean if so then WTF is the point of making a big deal of this game going to pc, it shoul've been on the pc and the news should be Division being released for xbox and ps4 not the other way around, it's like telling everybody oh have you are aloud to breathe..... it's so stupid how companies act now, grow the fuck up, but i forget companies are only after money and when they have too much they act like shitbags and use their power to cause excitment and drama over something that shouldn't have changed systems to begin with. it's almost like Blizzard making SC2 for xbox or ps3 first then saying because everybody wanted it we had to put it on pc, no you fucktards if something started on a pc leave it on the fucking pc xbox and ps can go fuck themselves for awhile before pc games get released on them.

    That's how thing's work now a days even among consoles. Final Fantasy used to be one of Nintendo's big guns then it became a Sony franchise. Team Ninja used to be mainly on consoles from Sony and Sega then all of a sudden they jumped ship to MS. Factor 5 went from trying to push Nintendo hardware to max (first devs to ever use Displacement Mapping and it was back on the GC) then they jumped ship to Sony. These things happen.
