The Division coming to PC thanks to fan demand

Tuesday, 20th August 2013 10:57 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Ubisoft has confirmed that The Division is coming to PC as a response to fan request.

In the video below, executive producer Fredrik Rundqvist thanks fans for their support, and promises that Ubisoft Massive will use its experience with PC development to deliver a quality experience.

The announcement follows Ubisoft’s comment that it wouldn’t rule out other platforms, and is yet another sign of Ubisoft’s increasingly warm stance on PC gaming; the publisher was notoriously uncommitted to the platform a few years ago. Of course, fans certainly made their voices clear, which can’t have hurt.

The Division was announced at E3 2013 as a next-gen console release; it’s an always-online co-op shooter, which could probably be described as an MMO, although Ubisoft doesn’t seem to like the term, and is definitely an RPG. Set in a plague-ravaged world, it has players working to restore order, and is part of the Tom Clancy family of games.

At this stage, Ubisoft hasn’t dated the game beyond late 2014. It’s also coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

    Not a surprise. Ubi, of all devs, likes to release their games everywhere. Even on WiiU.

    Awesome! My most highly anticipated next-gen game so far. Here’s hoping it won’t require UPlay.

    @9 – Far Cry 3 ran perfectly on my rig.

    at least they release every single game on PC

    and starting with 2011 games they solve the big issues after very short time
    before 2011 DX …
    SC Double Agent still very buggy even with the latest patch
