Working with other studios under the Ubisoft umbrella to support The Division 2, the reason for the delay is to make sure this next title update aligns with the developers’ vision for their popular Tom Clancy looter shooter.

We remain confident that this content will bring an exciting experience to our players and pave the way for the future of The Division 2 with future title updates coming in 2022. That being said, and to make sure we deliver this content on par with our vision, we have made the decision to move our new season, game mode and associated content release to February 2022.

This additional time will allow our passionate development team to deliver the best quality for this new content. Of course, we will in the meantime continue to support the game and work on most pressing live issues.

Released in early 2019, The Division 2 proved popular among fans of the original game, offering a more robust MMOFPS experience. However, it hasn’t enjoyed as long of a tail than other Ubisoft titles, most notably Rainbow Six Siege. The game received regular free content updates followed by a premium expansion, The Division 2: Warlords of New York.

Although The Division 2 isn’t winding down just yet, it’s safe to assume that Massive is focusing on bigger projects in its pipeline. The team is currently working on Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora which is based on James Cameron’s Avatar movie series. Announced in 2017, there’s no confirmed release date for this game though it will likely arrive in time for the Avatar sequel. If that wasn’t enough, Massive is also juggling a Star Wars video game.

Meanwhile, Ubisoft has laid out its future plans for The Division. The next game in the Tom Clancy series, The Division Heartland, won’t involve its original creators and is being handled by Red Storm Entertainment. This new entry will be free-to-play with testing due to begin next year.
