The Division has 9.5 million registered users & an average playtime of 3 hours a day

Yes people are still definitely playing the Division. The small matter of 9.5 million of them to be exact and the average play time is a not insiginificant three hours a day. That's a lot of questing for bobble hats. An Ubisoft financial call, reported by GamesIndustry.Biz (opens in new tab) revealed the success of the online shooter yesterday alongside the news that Far Cry Primal did better than expected earlier this year. 

"We ended fiscal 2015-16 on a very positive note, having effectively executed our plan: the performances delivered by The Division and Far Cry Primal exceeded our expectations, we continued our major come-back in the multiplayer segment and we saw a significant increase in player engagement levels for our games," said Ubi CEO Yves Guillemot. "The Division currently has 9.5 million registered users, and active players are playing the game an average of three hours per day. These successes resulted in our digital segment outperforming our targets for the fiscal year and positively impacted our profitability."

Ubi overall announced a rise in profitability of 12% and isn't slowing down any with the release of 5 big games this year despite the absence of a new Assassin's Creed game. *sob*
