The Division 2 Will Continue Despite Massive's Star Wars Project

Despite developer Massive moving onto a new Star Wars project, The Division 2 will continue receiving new content.

As part of Ubisoft's latest earnings call, CEO Yves Guillemot noted that the game will continue to be supported.

“The Massive studio is a large studio, and they are also collaborating with lots of studios all over the world… You’re going to see more on The Division in this year and the year after,” Guillemot stated.

The Division 2 Will Continue Despite Massive's Star Wars Project

The Division launched in early 2019, but Ubisoft had previously stated that it underperformed commercially – despite being regarded as an improvement on its predecessor in terms of critical consensus.

Developed using Massive's own Snowdrop Engine, the same tech will power an open-world Star Wars title that Ubisoft described as "groundbreaking" in its earnings call.

“We are very happy to be partnering again with Lucasfilm Games. The project will be headed by our Massive studio, who will make the most of their cutting edge technology, including the Snowdrop engine, to deliver a groundbreaking Star Wars adventure," Guillemot said.

"We are very proud of this collaboration."

Ubisoft wasn't entirely clear on what we can expect from The Division franchise going forward.

While it could be referring solely to seasonal content, it could be more along the lines of the Warlords of New York expansion.

It could even be a third game in the franchise, although that may be a bridge too far – even with a "large studio" and collaborations.

For more on The Division 2, the game recently received a sizeable patch that adds PS5 and Xbox Series S/X optimisations, including 60 FPS support and 4K resolution on supported consoles.

It also kicks off a new Resident Evil apparel event, crossing over with the survival horror adventure to offer cosmetics like a Nemesis mask.
