Ubisoft has clarified the release window for their shooter, The Division. In today’s quarterly conference call, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot relayed that The Division will arrive in late 2014. The open world title will hit the Xbox and PS4, and Guillemot clarified that this would probably be a holiday release for his company.
“We can expect it will be closer to the end of the year than the beginning,” said Guillemot.
In other related news, The Division is just one of many open world titles that Ubisoft is developing as the company doubles down on these type of wide open experiences with a multiplayer component.
While Guillemot’s comments give us hope, those that follow Ubisoft closely will remember the numerous times over the last few years that they delayed their biggest franchises. Splinter Cell: Conviction saw numerous delays this generation, as did Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, both games saw multiple delays before I final product was put to market.
