Ubisoft canceled The Division: Heartland for more promising games like XDefiant
Announced three years ago, the free-to-play PvPvE shooter Tom Clancy's The Division: Heartland has not shown any signs of life since last fall, and Ubisoft has finally clarified the fate of the project.
Let's remember that The Division: Heartland was presented in May 2021 and was planned to launch no later than 2022, but the release was subsequently postponed until 2023. In November, the game was featured in the Taiwanese ratings board.
In a new financial report, Ubisoft mentioned that it had stopped development of The Division: Heartland and redirected freed resources to more promising projects like Rainbow Six and XDefiant .
The decision to cancel The Division: Heartland was made as part of Ubisoft's "increased selectivity" in terms of its investments, as well as the publisher's desire to adapt to changing market conditions.
Ubisoft assured that the cancellation of The Division: Heartland was not easy for the company, and all its efforts are now aimed at helping the former game developers from Red Storm Entertainment - they learned about the fate of the project a few hours before the announcement.
It was assumed that users of The Division: Heartland, in the role of a resistance agent, would have to protect the American town of Silver Creek from other players, enemy factions and a deadly virus.
The Division: Heartland was positioned as a link between The Division and The Division 2 . The game was created for PC (Ubisoft Connect), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S. Ubisoft also has The Division 3 in development.
