Ubisoft’s sequel to The Division is coming March 15th, 2019. The Division 2 will take place in Washington, DC after an apocalyptic plague has laid waste to the city. A new trailer for the game premiered today at the Xbox E3 press conference, along with a gameplay demo.
Ubisoft surprised fans of The Division, an online-only shooter-RPG hybrid in the vein of Bungie’s Destiny, with the official announcement of a sequel back in March. We didn’t get a ton of details about the game at the time, other than that it will again be developed by Ubisoft-owned Swedish studio Massive Entertainment and done so using an updated version of Ubisoft’s Snowdrop game engine.
