It still might be cool if the game puts a radio-like filter on your party communications in game though.

 

Yeah that'd be very cool as long as you can hear the other person clearly.

looks good, but so do many games that use the Tom Clancy brand, but always end up being rubbish games.

 

Hope this one does well, and comes to PC. Looks very cool.

The developer, Ubisoft Massive (formerly known as Massive Entertainment), made World in Conflict and World in Conflict: Soviet Assault (in 2007 and 2009, respectively). If they make a PC version, then it will be good.

I just watched a video on IGN (I know, I know) and the developers talked about how the game comes with a companion tablet app (possibly smart phone too) that lets you play anywhere. But, when you play through the mobile app you actually control an aerial drone, and it has its own progression trees and skills. It can shoot, debuff enemies, heal teammates, etc. And it's all real-time. That's actually pretty cool.

 

FYI, you can see such a drone in the video posted a few pages back. It's the one that highlights the rooftop enemy for the players on the ground. That was actually another dev playing as the drone from a tablet.

 

I know I said it's off my radar because of the always-online aspect, but I may just have to give it a chance.

Yeah the Companion feature was already introduced during the demo. I just hope it isn't a requirement for the game. I hope it is like an optional feature, which is still very cool.

Say for an example, you want to scout ahead for enemies using maybe vents or something. It's an optional thing, or maybe you have to activate some switch where you character can't get into.. and you need something that small to go in.. I dunno. Just I guess.

Perhaps, they'll pull an Assassin's Creed 1 and release it for consoles first and then release the PC one 6 months later as a Director's Cut or something.

I can't wait to find out what the Xbox One exclusives are, and whether or not they will be timed. I'll take anything really, though I doubt very highly I'll be purchasing COD on next gen, I can appreciate that the XB1 version will have dedicated servers as one of its "exclusive features".

The Division May be Delayed to 2015
An anonymous source has claimed work on the game world has barely begun.
 
by Luke Karmali

January 7, 2014

 

The Division may be delayed until 2015 according to an anonymous source from Ubisoft Massive.

 

Speaking to GameReactor, the source claimed that while the recently-demonstrated Snowdrop Engine that powers the game is close to completion, only a sliver of the actual world has been built.

 

"The game engine works well, it's not done, but works well. The actual game development has barely started, however," said the anonymous insider.

 

"The fact that Ubisoft has gone public with a 2014 release date feels laughable to be perfectly honest, we will never be able to release The Division this year. It's a large project, and we have very far to go."

 

While unconfirmed, it's certainly possible that the title may have slipped to 2015 considering the fate that's befallen other Ubisoft titles. Last year, the publisher said that upcoming racer The Crew would release in the first quarter of 2014, with The Division following towards the end of the year. Since then though, a number of setbacks have occured.

 

Firstly, Watch Dogs was delayed to the first part of 2014, then The Crew was pushed back to the second quarter of the year. While we still don't have a solid release date for The Crew, it would make sense for Ubisoft to want to leave a bit of a gap between launching its titles. This means that the earliest we could see The Division would be the tail end of the year or, as the source suggests, maybe not before 2015, especially as the PC version is planned to be far more than a simple port.

 

We reached out to Ubisoft for comment but were told the publisher doesn't comment on rumour and speculation. For the time being the rumour is unsubstantiated, but it's definitely not outside the realms of possibility.

Very disappointing if true. This is my most anticipated game along with Watch_Dogs :(

To be honest, if they release it and works perfectly I will be happy that someone took the decision to not release a game before it is ready. The game looks amazing so I think the wait will be worth it.
