Despite the success of the first two installments, Ubisoft currently has no plans to release The Division 3.
While things could ultimately change, those close to the company have told Insider Gaming that a new mainline game in the series isn’t in development.
The Division first launched in 2016 to positive reviews. That was followed up by The Division 2 in 2019, which has sold more than 10 million copies total.
Currently in Season 10, The Division 2’s latest season event follows the story of General Peter Anderson. The mission of the current season is to stop Anderson from reaching an agreement with the Black Tusk, which could lead to the end of The Division.
The next major update to the game is currently behind due to game-breaking issues created while in development.
“In the process of creating the update which would resolve the issue, we encountered an error that brought down the build generation system for The Division 2,” Ubisoft said in a statement at the time.
What To Do Instead In The Division
With no plans for The Division 3 on the horizon, players will have to continue to patrol Washington D.C., and New York City. For those who can’t wait for more content in the series overall, the spinoff The Division Heartland remains in development by Red Storm Entertainment.
The game will be a free-to-play title that features PvPvE gameplay for up to 45 players as well as a full PvE mode that sees players complete missions and collect gear. The game was originally set to launch in 2022, but was delayed to 2023.
As of writing, there has been no update on when the game is expected to launch. When released, it’s planned to be available for PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4.
