‘The Division’ to make its debut on mobile!

While announcing The Division: Heartland, Ubisoft said it’s a “standalone game that doesn’t require previous experience with the series.”

Its currently in development at Red Storm studio.

“Having worked on Tom Clancy games since 1997, its extensive experience across numerous genres and games, most recently The Division and The Division 2, makes Red Storm a perfect fit for this project,” said Ubisoft.

On the other hand, will also unveil the mobile version soon in the coming months. It’s still unclear whether it will be similar to present games like Call of Duty: Mobile or other battle royale titles.

Ubisoft has, however, joined the party a bit late when it comes to venturing into the arena of BR games.

Previously, Activision and EA made their way into the now-popular category. And they are enjoying tremendous success, with offerings like Call of Duty: Warzone and Apex Legends respectively.

It will be interesting to see how the transformed version of The Division will keep the fans hooked.

Currently, Ubisoft has mainly been focusing on the second installment of the hit series.
