Ubisoft 'not ruling out PC release for The Division

Ubisoft says it hasn’t ruled out releasing newly announced Tom Clancy game The Division on PC. In development at Ubisoft Massive, which previously contributed to Assassin's Creed: Revelations and Far Cry 3, the online action RPG was revealed at E3 for release on Xbox One and PS4. The PC community was quick to make its voice heard - in just two weeks, over 110,000 people have added their names to a petition calling on Ubisoft to release the title on PC too – and the publisher has taken note.

Speaking to IGN in a video interview seemingly conducted at E3 but just recently published online, a Ubisoft spokesperson confirmed that the game is set for release in “winter 2014” on consoles, adding: “We're not ruling out other platforms because we do also read the internet. I think Ubisoft as a company considers maximising the potential of a game, so if the audience is there and the desire is there..." Ubisoft Massive creative director Niklas Cederstrom added: "It's very clear when you read the forums what people miss."

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 earlier this month. So much so, in fact, that we named it ‘Best game we're worried might be cancelled’ in our GamesRadar E3 2013 awards.
