During the financial conference call related to fiscal year 2017-18, Ubisoft’s Chief Financial Officer Alain Martinez and Chief Executive Officer Yives Guillemot talked about Tom Clancy’s The Division 2.
Guillemot admitted that the publisher was surprised by the speed in which gamers consumed the content of the first game of the franchise, so they’ve been working with the development team to bring “a lot of content at launch and to be ready to continue to supply a lot of content during the years that will follow the launch” in order to enable people to stay in the game for the long run.
Martinez mentioned that the first The Division could have improved the endgame and the folks at Ubisoft feel that “they got it now” and they feel comfortable, as the 1.8 patch for the first game was very well received. They think that they have the right tools to deliver a “much better game.”
Guillemot added that Ubisoft is leveraging all the experience accumulated on the first title to make sure they deliver a “fantastic sequel.”
Earlier today, we learned that Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 will release before March 31st, 2019.
