Ubisoft revealed today that are indeed releas­ing a sec­ond title of The Divi­sion. It will be lead by Mas­sive Enter­tain­ment, with Ubisoft Reflec­tions, Red Storm Enter­tain­ment, Ubisoft Annecy, Ubisoft Shang­hai and Ubisoft Bucharest in col­lab­o­ra­tion. 

The Divi­sion 2 will be pow­ered by an updat­ed ver­sion of the Snow­Drop engine. The dev team stat­ed this engine “enables us to real­ize our ambi­tions for the sequel, but more impor­tant­ly, we’re also tak­ing every­thing we learned over the past two years and apply­ing it towards the sequel to make sure we get it right.”

Ubisoft also let cur­rent fans of The Divi­sion know they will still be sup­port­ing the orig­i­nal title, includ­ing Xbox One X sup­port com­ing in April. Although The Divi­sion was not com­plete­ly praised by crit­ics, fans of the game have con­tin­ued to show sup­port and the devel­op­ment team did lis­ten to feed­back.

Although details on the sequel are sparse, it appears The Divi­sion 2 will show up at Ubisoft’s E3 con­fer­ence in June.
