The Division laid the foundation the sequel builds on and while it was believed that the first installment would see an end to its life cycle once The Division 2 hits, we now know this might not be the case.
According to David Polfeldt, Managing Director of Massive Entertainment, The Division 2 doesn’t necessarily mean the end of The Division. Both games can run parallel to each other, he suggested. However, nothing is finalized at the time being.
I think The Division 1 should continue and Part 2 is a kind of alternative way for the players. I do not know what happens but we are very open about this though.
The Division took us to New York while The Division 2 paves the way for us to visit Washington. Both stories are connected in the sense that the Division agents are the ones trying to secure the capital from the same infection that devastated New York.
Ubisoft previously mentioned that no major updates for the first game will come out anymore. They have reached their goal with the game and will now use it as a base for The Division 2 in terms of gameplay and story. It would be great if Ubisoft would continue supporting the first game for at least the first year of The Division 2.
