Ubisoft’s highly anticipated online shooter role-playing game, The Division, has been delayed to Q4 fiscal year 2016. In normal person speak, that means the game will be out at some point between January and March 2016. News of the delay came during Ubisoft’s quarterly financial earnings report.
Originally revealed during E3 2013, The Division was meant to hit PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One during the festive period 2015. Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot stated that the delay will likely result in them not selling as many initial units of the game, as it will miss the lucrative Christmas shopping slot. He did add that The Division would still likely hit those same sales figures during its lifetime.
At the beginning of May, Ubisoft revealed that an additional development team, Ubisoft Annecy, had been brought in to assist in development of Tom Clancy’s The Division.
