Update: We contacted Ubisoft to ask if the date listed by Amazon is correct, the company has shared the following statement with us:
With regards to The Division release date, Ubisoft have only officially announced a release window of the first quarter of calendar year 2016.
This means that the release date listed by Amazon isn’t correct but, strangely, Amazon still hasn’t removed or corrected the date.
Original Story: Just a few days ago we reported that Ubisoft has once again delayed The Division. The game was originally scheduled for a 2014 release, which we knew wasn’t possible for Ubisoft to do, but still they announced it for 2014.
The title is now planned for a release in 2016, we don’t have an official release date but 2016 is the year of The Division, hopefully.
While Ubisoft is quiet on the matter, retailer Amazon has shared a release date for The Division, thanks to a listing on the official website.
According to the listing in question, The Division is heading to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on February 28, 2016. It isn’t the first time Amazon has listed a release date before the official announcement and it certainly won’t be the last.
There is no way to tell if this date is correct besides a confirmation from the publisher. However, even after the buzz generated by publications over the internet, the listing remains unchanged. This suggests that there is a chance we aren’t being trolled by Amazon and The Division will actually make it in February 2016.
Ubisoft is yet to comment on this leaked information, like I mentioned, but we will let you know as soon as they share something with us or any changes are made to the listing.
Do you think The Division will actually be released in February? After a couple of delays I highly doubt it. An April 2016 launch seems plausible to me. Let us know what you think.
