Ubisoft has announced that it is hitting the pause on The Division DlC as it plans to focus on the core game. Ubisoft announced on its official forums that devs are aiming to release update 1.4 without the next DLC, Survival.
According to Ubisoft, The Division DLC, Survival, will launch before the end of 2016 but can not provide any specific release date yet.
The devs will be focusing on fixing a bunch of The Division’s persistent glitches and mechanical headaches instead. Following are the issues that Ubisoft plans to fix in The Division update 1.4.
- Fixing bugs, including those listed in our Known Issues as well as many other ones
- Making loot drops more relevant to the player
- Enemy difficulty and time to kill
- Gear Sets and weapons rebalancing
- Solo player experience
- Dark Zone and PvP balancing
- Quality of life additions based on community suggestions (such as weapon skins no longer taking inventory space)
Most of the issues that Ubisoft plans to address have been bothering players since the launch of the game. But it is good to see that Ubisoft is taking time to fix these issues before releasing more content.
In other news, Ubisoft is preparing to give the same treatment to The Division as it did with Assassin’s Creed franchise. The Division movie is in development, and Zero Dark Thirty and Interstellar star, Jessica Chastain, along with Jake Gyllenhaal will play the lead role in the movie.
Gyllenhaal will not only star in The Division movie but he will also produce the movie himself.
The silver screen adaptation will follow the story of the game very closely. The movie will focus on a military unit trying to find a cure for the disease that has nearly destroyed New York.
The Division is a multiplayer third person shooter developed by Ubisoft Massive for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
