Tom Clancy's The Division Pushed Back to Release in 2015 - More News will be Revealed at E3 2014
Officially announced during Ubisoft's E3 2013 press conference, Tom Clancy's The Division is set to release only on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Ubisoft never officially assigned a release date to The Division but it was, according to some posts and discussions, certain that the game will be out later this year. However, now it seems like that is not going to happen.
Ubisoft is no longer stranger to delays so you should not be surprised when I tell you that Tom Clancy's The Division has been delayed to 2015, but this announcement may come as a disappointment to many desperately awaiting fans as it was said that the game will take no longer than six months to hit the platforms. The delay was confirmed via a post on the game's official website.
The delay of the game was already rumored and while the publisher did not put forward any proper explanation verifying the need of delay, it is said that the game will not hit the shelves before March 2015. Below is the complete official announcement by the development team of the game.
Today we announced that Tom Clancy's The Division will be available in 2015 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Working on The Division is a once in a lifetime opportunity for all of us at Massive, Reflections, and Red Storm Entertainment. 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.
