The Division 3 Is Officially In The Works, Announced With Little Fanfare
Ubisoft has officially confirmed that they are actively assembling a team for the development of The Division 3, the next installment in the popular franchise.
In a press release introducing Julian Gerighty, the game director of Star Wars Outlaws, as the new executive producer for The Division series, Ubisoft discreetly revealed the existence of The Division 3.
According to the press release, Julian Gerighty will oversee all The Division games and products, including Tom Clancy’s The Division 3, which is currently being developed by Massive Entertainment, who are actively recruiting a team for the game.
Gerighty’s role will involve guiding The Division franchise in a cohesive direction across multiple games, such as the mobile game The Division Resurgence and the upcoming free-to-play entry in the series, The Division Heartland.
While working on Massive Entertainment’s Star Wars Outlaws, Gerighty will continue to be involved with the project until its release. Although Star Wars Outlaws does not have a specific launch date yet, it is expected to be available sometime in 2024.
The press release emphasizes that Julian remains fully committed to ensuring the success of Star Wars Outlaws for both the development team and the fans. He will remain dedicated to the project until its launch, ensuring that the game aligns with the intended creative vision and delivers an exceptional experience for players.
Massive Entertainment is certainly keeping busy. In addition to Star Wars Outlaws, the studio is also working on another open-world game called Avatars: Frontiers of Pandora, based on a popular sci-fi property. Avatars: Frontiers of Pandora is scheduled to be released in December 2023.
As for the future of The Division franchise, Ubisoft provided fans with a more detailed glimpse of The Division Heartland earlier this year, highlighting its unique survival elements that differentiate it from previous entries in the series. Although a closed beta for The Division Heartland took place over the summer, the game does not have an official release date yet. On the other hand, The Division Resurgence is set to launch this fall, aiming to faithfully capture the essence of the original The Division in a mobile format.
