Exciting News for Division Fans: Tom Clancy's The Division 3 Confirmed in Development

Ubisoft has dropped a bombshell for fans of the acclaimed Tom Clancy's The Division franchise. Massive Entertainment, the Swedish studio behind the original titles, is now hard at work developing Tom Clancy's The Division 3. Currently engaged in other high-profile projects like Star Wars Outlaws and Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Massive Entertainment is no stranger to the world of The Division, having crafted the first two installments. This news signifies Ubisoft's unwavering commitment to the franchise's longevity, with the appointment of Star Wars Outlaws' creative director, Julian Gerighty, as the executive producer for The Division franchise.

The Division series has captivated gamers worldwide with an impressive player base of nearly 40 million across all titles. Julian Gerighty will oversee all aspects of The Division games and products, including the highly anticipated Tom Clancy's The Division 3. Ubisoft stated, "This announcement represents Ubisoft's dedication to the brand's longevity," highlighting Julian's role in unifying the creative vision, development oversight, and operations for The Division series.

While Julian Gerighty takes the reins of The Division franchise, he remains committed to ensuring that Star Wars Outlaws achieves its intended creative vision and delivers an exceptional gaming experience. This strategic move underscores Ubisoft's confidence in Gerighty's ability to navigate both projects seamlessly.

In Julian Gerighty's words, "There are only a few games that I can genuinely say blew me away the first time I saw them, and Tom Clancy's The Division is one of them. I was immediately hooked, like many others in our devoted player community. It's a privilege and an honour to continue to build incredible and unforgettable experiences in this amazing world with the most talented teams worldwide, and I can't wait for what's next."

Tom Clancy's The Division debuted in 2016, making headlines with a jaw-dropping gameplay reveal at E3 2013, marking the dawn of a new gaming era on Ubisoft's cutting-edge Snowdrop game engine. Set in a near-future New York City ravaged by a viral pandemic, players embarked on a mission to rebuild Manhattan.

The Division's sequel, Tom Clancy's The Division 2, arrived in 2019, immersing players in a near-future Washington, D.C., as they worked tirelessly to restore the nation's capital. While the game garnered praise, it didn't quite reach the commercial heights of its predecessor, a fact Ubisoft openly acknowledged.

Fans can also look forward to a free-to-play spin-off, Tom Clancy's The Division Heartland, slated for release next year. The Division universe is expanding, and Tom Clancy's The Division 3 is poised to be the next thrilling chapter in this beloved franchise. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting development!
