Tom Clancy’s The Division from Ubisoft has been a widely successful and popular game title on PC and consoles, and now it’s coming to mobile.
This morning Ubisoft announced its plans for the expansion of the Tom Clancy’s The Division universe. Which includes a everything from the launch of Tom Clancy’s The Division and Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, as well as the DLC content, to an upcoming Netflix original film based on the game.
Ubisoft, while discussing the future of this expanded universe, laid out a timeline for all of the upcoming projects. Included in those is a new free-to-play title called Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland, as well as a mobile title coming to Android and iOS at some point.
Tom Clancy’s The Division Mobile will “bring the franchise to a wider audience”
This might be one of the furthest out projects, but it also might be the most ambitious. While Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland is probably going to be much larger in scale, it seems like it might be a battle royale title. Which are all the rage right now.
So players will probably instantly love it. But mobile titles have a tendency to catch a bad rap. And for good reason. Having said that, titles like Diablo Immortal, Call Of Duty: Mobile, and League Of Legends: Wild Rift do a great job at showcasing how good they can actually be.
Given the success and the quality of those games, perhaps it won’t be so difficult for Ubisoft to capture the magic that Tom Clancy’s The Division was able to cultivate. Ubisoft says its plan for Tom Clancy’s The Division Mobile is to bring the franchise to an even wider audience.
And if it plays all the cards right, it could wind up being a huge success as well. The studio hasn’t shared any specific details on the game just yet though. Other than the fact that it’s working on a mobile title for the Tom Clancy’s The Division franchise.
You can sign up to try Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland via early tests
While there’s not much to know about the mobile title right now, as it seems pretty far off (sad trombone noises), Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland is currently in development at Red Storm Entertainment. The Ubisoft-owned studio that has worked on Tom Clancy’s The Division and Tom Clancy’s The Division 2.
The game will be a free-to-play title that is both part of the Tom Clancy’s The Division universe and a standalone game that “doesn’t require previous experience with the series.” Ubisoft is also allowing interested players to sign up for early testing. Though keep in mind that signing up doesn’t guarantee that you will get to be a part of the tests when they pop up.
Ubisoft plans to launch Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland sometime in 2021 or 2022. So expect test to start in the near future.
