The Division delayed to 2015

Rumors have been circulating that we wouldn’t see the open-world 3rd person shooter until 2015 – they said it wasn’t ready or that development had barely started. Well, apparently those rumors were true. It’s official, you’ll only get your hands on The Division next year.

During the financial call for Ubisoft, CEO Yves Guillemot stated:

As you have noticed, The Division is not included into our full-year guidance. It will now be released in calendar 2015. We will provide more information on this highly anticipated new brand at E3.

This is a real shame – The Division looked to be one of the more interesting games this year. The premise was strong, and the gameplay seemed to be a fresh take on the open-world, multiplayer shooter. It was going to be a sharp contrast to Bungie’s Destiny, and I was looking forward to seeing how they’d shape up in competition.

Could this mean that The Division will be Ubisoft’s new Watch Dogs? It’s a title people are excited for, but instead of launching towards the end of this year, it will come at some point next year. The delay will give plenty of time for hype building and controversies about original resolutions vs release quality. Or maybe we can hear all about the different collector’s editions and Season Passes necessary to fully enjoy the game? Delays just leave time for controversies, but hopefully it also means that they have time to fully develop the game and make it something worth waiting for.

    Better start saving for 2015, a lot of games to be released then.

    I think these guys have all learnt from the too-soon BF4 launch debacle. Hopefully.

    I would rather want a game to be delayed so that they can fix and add things.

    I am very glad this got moved to next year to be honest, as end of the year there are too many games coming out I really want to play Destiny, Far Cry 4, Dragon Age, Batman, LOTR Shadow of Mordor and Assassins Creed most likely so I think it’s better to spread the games out a bit will definitively save me some money;)

    No problem with delay but what perplexes me is Ubisoft seem to be getting into this vicious circle lately. Why make outlandish predictions of when, instead of just revealing the game with a TBA date. That way it can never be truly delayed – we basically all suspected as much anyway in this one!

    I mean common,who in the first place thought the games actually gonna release this year to begin with? In one developer interview they clearly said they can’t believe Ubisoft told the press the game was releasing this year and even stated it’s not possible in the first place. So i’ve been waiting for the official delay.
