Ubisoft Denies Reports Saying The Division was Held Back on PC

The Division - Gamescom 3

Earlier today, we reported about a statement from an anonymous Ubisoft according to which the studio held back the PC version of The Division in order to create parity among PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.

We do have to kind of keep it in check with consoles because it would kind of be unfair just to push it so far away from them.

Following the uproar from PC gaming community, Ubisoft has denied the statement quoted above labelling it as ‘simply not true.’ In a statement received by PCGamesN; Ubisoft confirmed that the PC version of The Division was developed from the ground up and that the game’s recent closed-beta supports the claim:

It has come to our attention that a comment from one of our team members has been perceived by some members of the community to imply the PC version of The Division was ‘held back’ and this is simply not true. From the beginning, the PC version of The Division was developed from the ground up and we’re confident players will enjoy the game and the features this version has to offer. And the feedback from PC players who participated in the recent closed beta supports this.

It is only fitting that a developer would say such a thing about its game, but to be honest, I tried the game’s closed-beta across all platforms and PC is definitely the platform to play the game on. Although I do have my complaints such as poor AI, clunky movement, and such; but that is another story for another time.

Tom Clancy’s The Division is scheduled to release on Mar. 08, 2015 for PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.
