Tom Clancy’s The Division 3 is in development under new executive producer

Ubisoft has announced that Tom Clancy’s The Division 3 is in the works now that a new executive producer is poised to take over the franchise.

On Ubisoft’s blog, the company revealed that Julian Gerighty, who is currently the Creative Director of Star Wars: Outlaws, will transition to being the Executive Producer for The Division Brand once Outlaws comes out. Previously, two The Division games were confirmed to be in the works — a mobile game titled The Division Resurgence and survival shooter The Division Heartland — but this announcement confirms that players should also eventually expect a full sequel to 2019’s The Division 2.

As Gerighty isn’t even in charge of The Division franchise yet and still needs to build a team for the sequel, it’s clear that The Division 3 is far from release, and not a lot of concrete details about it can be shared. Still, Ubisoft confirmed that its development will be led by Massive Entertainment, and Gerighty shared a bit of his vision of quality for the franchise. 

“I think that we delivered [quality] with Tom Clancy’s The Division’s cutting-edge visuals, incredible gameplay, and promise to the player that they can’t get this experience anywhere else, and then again with Tom Clancy’s The Division 2,” he explained. “It’s about refinement, it’s about pushing the quality bar consistently forward … There are a huge number of talented developers currently working on the brand, and I think that having more consistency can only make everybody’s work sing.”

Ubisoft did not announce platforms or a release window for Tom Clancy’s The Division 3

Everything we know about Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint
ghost recon breakpoint story characters gameplay release date announcement

Ghost Recon Breakpoint is the next evolution of the long-running tactical shooter franchise, expanding on the mechanics and features introduced in Ghost Recon Wildlands while refining stealth and action elements.

Ubisoft's shooter will be launching later this year for current-generation consoles and PC, and during the announcement stream, we got to see how the game will work and the conflict that brought the Ghosts to the mysterious island Auroa.
Story and Location
Ghost Recon Breakpoint takes the action away from Bolivia and to the island Auroa, which is the home of the autonomous drone company Skell Technology. Led by the charismatic Jace Skell, the organization has promised to end food shortages, heal the sick, and erase poverty, but it has been criticized for its surveillance system. At least one politician has also been killed by a drone in an assassination, suggesting Skell has more nefarious motivations.

The Division 2 offers nothing but a funhouse mirror of America

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is an improvement on its predecessor in nearly every way, delivering more interesting missions, better endgame content, and more engaging combat. For fans of the original, it’s an easy recommendation, and that shoot-and-loot gameplay loop can keep you entertained for weeks. However, the game’s setting – Washington D.C. – feels woefully underused. What could have been an interesting look into how America’s capital would react in the event of an apocalypse is instead a complete fantasy. “Washington D.C.” no longer means anything. The Division 2 feels like a version of America that was traced, rather than drawn from a genuine understanding of its history, citizens, or conflicts.
Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

The Division 2’s setting obviously carries increased weight in 2019, with a cult of personality surrounding the real-life president and an increase in violence against racial and religious minorities. Recent Ubisoft Clancy titles haven’t typically tackled such sensitive subject matter, but they also weren’t set in the nation’s capital on the brink of collapse. A secret government agency sending in operators to protect the citizenry from violent gangs and neo-fascist rule certainly seems like it could work, even with the more topical elements removed, but The Division 2 has almost nothing to say about any of the subject matter it addresses.
