Ubisoft Massive has revealed that The Division 2 is set to receive a brand new game mode later this year.
Ubisoft published a post about the new mode on its official news blog on Friday, Mar. 5—making good on a promise to reveal more information to fans just a few days prior. In the post, titled “The Road Ahead,” the company detailed all its accomplishments regarding the game and explained just what players could expect moving forward.
The Division 2 Gets New Mode
Ubisoft began the update by recapping The Division’s achievements and thanking its fans for all their support in 2020. According to the post, the franchise has reached over 40 million “unique players.” It saw its greatest increase in monthly users during the Warlords of New York expansion that launched in March.
“We wouldn’t be here today without your passion and continuous support,” they wrote, “It is your support that fuels the future of The Division, so again: Thank you!”
They went on to explain the finer details of the mode, calling it “entirely new” and discussing the addition of “new ways to progress your agent with an emaphsis on increasing build variety and variability. Ubisoft Massive will take charge of this project with some extra support from Ubisoft Bucharest. This leaves Adrian Trasca and Yannick Banchereau as the producer and associate creative director.
“The development of this new update is still in its early stages and will take several months to complete. As a result, our next major update is currently scheduled for release in late 2021.” They wrote, noting that this is being done to ensure the new content will bring “meaningful change.”
Unfortunately for some fans, however, this shift in focus means that Division 2 players won’t be seeing any other new content for a while. Ubisoft announced that they will be re-running old seasons to give players “the chance to collect rewards and collectibles that your might have missed out on.” There will also be a influx of Leagues and Global Events headed their way with a few new minor installations such as cosmetic armor and titles.
