Ubisoft announced in a recent presentation that it is integrating Tom Clancy’s The Division with mobile platforms. Presumably in its very early stages of development right now, Ubisoft officially mentioned Tom Clancy’s The Division Mobile without much fanfare in its press note, choosing instead to focus on other developments around The Division franchise. The latter is getting a brand new game on PC, called The Division: Heartland – which Ubisoft says is a fully standalone game and doesn’t require players to have played previous versions of The Division series to get acquainted.
As for the upcoming game for phones, Tom Clancy’s The Division on phones doesn’t really have any specifics at the moment, other than the fact that it’s in the works. Considering the growing impact of mobile gaming around the world, coupled with the good graphics performance and processing capabilities of the latest generation flagships, it’s no surprise that more and more gaming franchises are looking to create a mobile version of their game. Activision’s Call of Duty has seen some success with its Battle Royale mobile game, and while it has yet to bring a story-based version to phones, others are clearly taking it. pins.
It’s too early to talk about what The Division will bring to phones, however. Ubisoft didn’t even give a rough timeline for the game, simply stating that more details about it would be shared “at a later date.” This suggests that Tom Clancy’s The Division Mobile is still in its very early stages of development, with no concrete timeline for its launch. That being said, given the generally rapid movement in the tech space these days, it would be surprising if The Division doesn’t at least show up in teasers and beta trials by the end of 2021.
Ubisoft, however, has focused on The Division: Heartland – a game that will likely not be The Division 3, but a parallel participant in the series nonetheless. That’s pretty much implied in Ubisoft’s statement, which says, “Heartland is a standalone game that doesn’t require prior experience with the series, but will provide a whole new perspective on the universe in a new setting.” Such parallel ports of games are not at all uncommon and are some interesting additions that may or may not tie into the main storyline at a later stage.
