Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is an upcoming online action role-playing video game developed by Massive Entertainment and published by Ubisoft. The game will be released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 15, 2019.

Gameplay[edit]

Played from a third-person perspective, the game takes place 6 months after its predecessor in Washington D.C., in which a civil war between survivors and villainous bands of marauders breaks out.[1] In the game, players can cooperate with each other to complete objectives. The game will also feature raids, which can be completed by up to 8 players.[2]

Development[edit]

The game is currently being worked on by Massive Entertainment.[3] Evaluating the feedback from players regarding the first game, Massive planned to include more game content at launch and improve the endgame.[4] The game's endgame development was prioritized by Massive after hearing players' complaints from the first game.[5]

The game was officially announced on March 9, 2018, by Ubisoft, with the first gameplay footage being premiered at the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2018 in June 2018,[6] In the Expo, Ubisoft confirmed that the game will be released on 15 March 2019 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.[7] A beta is set to be released prior to the game's launch.[8] After the game's release, three episodes of downloadable content, which add new story content and gameplay modes, will be released for all players for free.[9]
