We know that The Division looks amazing, it even got our “Best New IP” award. When it was originally announced, it was only going to come to next-gen consoles (and tablet, sort of). But now, it seems that PC gamers might also get to play.
When The Division was announced and looked beautiful, PC gamers took to the internet to demand access, too. In fact, the petition is still running, if you care to go sign and demand your right to play this game on something other than PS4 or Xbox One.
In an interview with IGN, an Ubisoft rep said
We’re not ruling out other platforms because we do also read the internet.
Good to know, Ubisoft. Also, the spokesperson said that Ubisoft always wants to maximize the potential of a game – if there is enough demand from PC gamers, it will prove to be worthwhile. Remember, this was their same argument about why NOT to release games on the Wii U, just not enough demand. So, let’s see how this shapes up. At least it’s nice to see that some developers are still aware of PC gamers, even when all the buzz is about next-gen consoles.
The game is set for release in Winter (Northern Hemisphere) 2014, so about another year and a half to go. Plenty of time for gamers on all platforms to make themselves heard.
