Ubisoft is reportedly unlikely to release new versions of The Division 2 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles. Although the game remains popular, even now in 2023, the company doesn’t want to leave behind its older consoles, the PS4 and Xbox One. Division 2 creative director Yannick Banchereau explained to MP1st (via Eurogamer) the rationale behind not making native versions of the game for updated consoles. As the game only has one version available for all platforms, taking full advantage of the newest console technology would mean making the game unavailable on the older systems. Ubisoft doesn’t want to force players to upgrade and potentially miss out on the experience.
This announcement is relevant because Division 2 is an action-RPG that continues to attract a large player base across multiple platforms including PC, PS4, and Xbox One even after several years since its release. Ubisoft is known for its long-term support of their game franchises and has provided ongoing support through updates and new content for Division 2 as well.
The current decision comes as a surprise to gamers who anticipated a new version of the game being available on the latest consoles. However, those who have played the game may understand the need for consistency across all platforms. Consequently, Ubisoft plans to support all three generations of consoles for the foreseeable future.
This news highlights the importance of keeping compatibility in mind when making games available across a broad range of platforms. Ensuring that gamers can enjoy seamless gameplay and not feel forced to upgrade, presents a challenge for game developers to make gaming experiences available to everyone. Ubisoft’s decision to continue supporting the older consoles shows that the company values its current player base and does not want to leave them behind or make them upgrade.
In conclusion, Ubisoft’s decision to not release native versions of Division 2 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles is unlikely. The company’s focus is on maintaining consistency across all platforms and not leaving behind its current player base. Ubisoft’s long-term support of the Division 2 franchise has contributed to its ongoing growth, and players can rest assured that Ubisoft will continue to provide support across all platforms for the foreseeable future.
