What an incredible few years it's been for the team here at Massive! When we first began work on Tom Clancy's The Division, we knew we had something special and something we believed in so strongly that we wanted to make sure we got it right. We also knew we couldn't achieve that goal without your help.

Since the launch of The Division two years ago, we've remained focused on this philosophy. We continue to create more opportunities to interact directly with livestreams, ongoing surveys, and social media. We also introduced public test servers as a way of getting immediate feedback before integrating major features and changes into the game. We've never stopped wanting to make The Division better and our most recent 1.8 update is a testament to that, as seen from your overwhelming feedback and support.

All of these new features and experiences have made our team better, too. We're nimbler and better prepared to take action based on feedback. And now, more than ever before, we have a clear vision of what's important and what continues to make The Division a special experience for so many people. Following our Year 2 anniversary celebration, we're going to keep supporting that experience with new title updates that will bring new Global Events, Xbox One X enhancements, and more.

That said, we've always envisioned the story in the game we launched in 2016 as the beginning chapter in a larger saga, and today we're excited to share more info about what's next for The Division universe.

We're thrilled to announce that we are working on Tom Clancy's The Division 2, and that development will be led by Massive Entertainment in collaboration with Ubisoft Reflections, Red Storm Entertainment, Ubisoft Annecy, Ubisoft Shanghai and Ubisoft Bucharest. The Division 2 will be powered by an updated version of the Snowdrop engine that enables us to realize our ambitions for the sequel, but more importantly, we're also taking everything we learned over the past two years and applying it towards the sequel to make sure we get it right.

Part of that means recognizing your commitment to The Division. With that in mind, we're adding a new type of achievement called "Shields" to the game. Earning them will unlock special rewards in The Division 2 when it launches.

On behalf of all the teams at Ubisoft, we thank you for the support you've given us over the past two years, and we hope that our continued work will earn that support for many years to come. We can't wait to show you what we have in store for The Division 2 at E3 2018 in June. See you then!

Uhhh. Hmmm. Really think they should have just continued to expand upon the original. So much more map to unlock/add. I guess maybe the new version of the Snowdrop engine will allow them to make the game more badass??? I really like the time we spent playing The Division, so maybe I will add it to the collection some day.

I'm sure release is still pretty far off but I can definitely fuck with this. Game had flaws but overall is very solid especially post Y1. Will be cool to see what they come up with.

I kind of want them to switch cities entirely tbh, even with so much of NYC still to be unlocked it can get to be a bit boring of a map given the grid nature of the city. Not to be biased but I think Boston would be a great choice or Philly, much more diverse layout.

I'm okay with this. It'd be very hard to bring people back to the base game with paid expansions very few games are successful at it. I Like the idea of The Division and the game from level 1-30 was great end game was very lacking and they messed up the dark zone a bunch in the first month or so that killed a lot of the playerbase. They've made really big improvements to the game since and whilst not perfect is much better than it was day 1.

I'd hope The Division 2 would start off on better footing due to the groundwork of the first game. I'd also hope that they do make some big changes as well. Destiny to Destiny 2 was laughable at how similar they were.
