The Division Delayed Until 2015

The Division Delayed Until 2015

The Division

Tom Clancy's The Division, another big-name Ubisoft title, has been hit with a lengthy delay.

Ubisoft is starting to make a habit of delaying it's biggest name titles, with Watch Dogs getting hit with a delay a mere month before it's scheduled release, and now, Tom Clancy's The Division being pushed back to 2015. The title, which is being developed for PS4, Xbox One, and, following some overwhelming fan feedback, PC, was announced at last year's E3, and although no official release date was given, most people assumed we'd see it within a year.

"Working on The Division is a once in a lifetime opportunity for all of us at Massive, Reflections, and Red Storm Entertainment," reads the post from the development team. "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."

"We want to thank you again for the exceptional ongoing support. Community is at the heart of what we are doing and we're very much designing the game with you in mind, so your involvement means a lot to us," it added.

More information should be revealed at Ubisoft's press conference at this year's E3.

Huh... Wonder what caused the delay. The PC version being added or something bad?

And another game is delayed.

If this keeps happening, 2014 won't get any games. Or at least console gamers won't. We already lost the witcher 3, and that was a real next gen game. Or it least it is with a 780 TI and an I7.

Jesus Christ they have developed for PC for 20 years, these consoles should be easy.

It seems Ubisoft can't do anything right.

I'm not surprised, somehow I never got the feeling it was as far along as that one level demonstrated last year suggested. It always felt like that was all they had at the time and the lack of further information and hyping. Honestly, it's not much of a bad thing I'd say. I had the opposite with Watch Dogs, where there was so much early hype that the enthusiasm was really gone after summer last year, then the delays followed and now I'm just left with a mix of meh and scepticism. At least with The Division they never got me crazy up to now.

Delayed? It has never been confirmed for a release date or year prior to this. The fans have been hammering on and on with "plz give release date", to the point that I seriously doubt I'll enjoy playing with other players. And the devs have stood adamant on "We'll announce something when we'll announce something", because the game was probably never intended to ship in 2014. If Ubisoft announces 15. February 2015 as the official release date, and THEN say it's been delayed, then it's been delayed. But as long as they haven't even announced an original release date, "delayed" isn't the word I'd use.

Ultratwinkie:

I'd say the opposite. Delaying games that aren't ready is absolutely the right call. Better a decent game next year than a bad one this year.

So pretty much fact now that these consoles were rushed out the door, there are no real games for these consoles, "next gen" but with nothing to play. Untill over a year later lol This has got to be the most piss poor console generation launch ever.

But don't worry! We have unconfirmed reports of the next Assassins Creed clone, Assassins Creed: Deliverance will be coming out on time for the PSP Go!

At least Ubisoft is giving people time to finish games. Instead of just pushing half finished crap out the door like the norm. But I could be wrong, its possible they just started making these titles.
