The Division 3

Ubisoft has announced Tom Clancy’s The Division 3 is happening and will be led by Julian Gerighty who has been appointed Executive Producer for The Division brand. The announcement that The Division 3 was a thing was revealed in a tweet by Massive Entertainment, developers of The Division and The Division 2.

Gerighty is currently working on Star Wars Outlaws which is also being developed by Massive Entertainment. He will make the move back to The Division brand once Star Wars Outlaws has shipped. Gerrighty previously worked on the first two games in The Division series, first as Associate Creative Director on The Division and then as Creative Director on The Division 2.

Fans of The Division games will probably have to wait a while for The Division 3 to launch, however, as it sounds like Julian Gerighty still has to build a team to develop the game. “A core focus of Gerighty’s is to build a team for Tom Clancy’s The Division 3, which will be led by Massive Entertainment,” a Ubisoft blog post says.

So it sounds like The Division 3 hasn’t even started development yet or is in the very early concept phase.

Ubisoft also currently has The Division Heartland, a free-to-play game set in Tom Clancy’s The Division Universe in development. Heartland doesn’t have a release date yet but is supposed to launch at some point next year.

The announcement of a third The Division game is certainly very welcome news. Although I didn’t play much of the first game, I put over 200 hours into The Division 2, especially during the Pandemic and lockdown. I really liked the open-world, RPG aspects of the game and the shooting mechanics were pretty great too. So I’ll be looking forward to more news on The Division 3 when it arrives.
