The Division delayed until 2016

Post by OneBadHuskerFan on Tue May 12, 2015 5:02 pm

Not surprising.  I was excited about this game but I think it's going to be a mess.  I'm not sure Ubisoft have have any clue what they're doing anymore.

The Division delayed till 2016, to release between Jan-March 2016

They were showing this game so long ago and then we heard nothing so I'm not surprised. It looked and sounded like it should be a great game.

It could still be but Ubi has been dropping the ball big time lately so my trust in them is pretty low.  Definitely won't be pre-ordering it.

If I remember right, Ubi started pulling projects and rebooting everything in development because of the struggles with the last couple AC games.  Doesn't surprise me that they're going SLOW with this to try and get it right.  

They'll be in dire straits if they rush another half-assed game out, they'll probably be even worse off if they keep delaying this one and it's not a nearly perfect when it drops.  Still, I'm looking forward to this, we need another good FPS that isn't Cock of Doody.

I was actually waiting fro this one. Now I'm just waiting for the next best thing.
I guess RB6, COD, and Halo 5 will have to hold me over.

It's a  "damned if you do, damned if you don't" for Ubisoft.  If they rush to get a game out to calm the masses, then the game will probably be a complete mess and people will start complaining and say stuff like "why'd they release an incomplete game?" and "Ubisoft needs to get their act straight".  If they choose to delay the game to because it's not ready for whatever reason then people will also start complaining saying "This is ridiculous, I'm not getting this game anymore" and "Ubisoft needs to get their act straight".  

I figured that a 2016 release was likely to happen since they already stated in a previous interview awhile back that a 2015 release wasn't likely to happen.

I had to lol after this topic and then yesterday they announced the next assassins creed game. Really ubisoft get back to your roots R6 graw. Those were good games. But I guess they don't bring in the cash that an AC game does. I hope some game developer comes along and actually cares about making good games not just rakeing in the dough. Blah

I guess the positive thing is Jan 2016 is only 8 months away.
Not THAT long when you think about it.

the only plus side is it free up some cash as normally the holiday season eat me alive as far as gaming goes...

plus the probably really did it so it would not compete with triple A titles

Or they could, I don't know, maybe not announce a release date till they are actually pretty sure it would launch. Shocked

Exactly what I was thinking 'Septor. Just hold back on your excitement until you're sure you can deliver. Then announce what you're working on.

The thing is, I don't they even ever OFFICIALLY announced a release date for the game. I think it was mostly just rumor and speculation on the release date. I could be proven wrong. I remember one article saying that a 2015 release would be extremely hopeful, but never any set date.

No, they pretty much said "Holiday 2015". I don't have a source and can't be bothered to look it up but it wouldn't be "delayed till April 2016" if it wasn't supposed to launch in 2015 would it?

Well, originally it was going to come out in 2014...

According to CVG, Ubisoft's top dog confirmed that Tom Clancy's The Division release date will arrive sometime "closer to the end of 2014,"

Still, the latest comments from Guillemot certainly add credibility to the theory that Ubisoft is planning to make The Division the centerpiece of the company's Holiday 2014 lineup.

So yeah, they never had an actual specific day it would come out, but it was certainly expected to have been out holiday 2014.

^This. It's great to have a product release buggy and then the bastards have the audacity to announce DLC at an additional cost BEFORE the patches come out to fix the stuff that was broken at release, I'm just saying...

Soon enough the patches that fix the original game will have to be purchased with the DLC pass.

Exactly what I was thinking. The public let it be ok for these companies to charge extra for content that should have been in the game, why not charge for fixes that shouldn't have been needed for the game.

Anywho, I do agree with the comment about making more R6 and GRAW games. Those were some quality products and it would be nice to have another strong franchise to give COD a run for its money. Heck, I really liked GR:FS and started replaying that a couple months ago on the 360. Really nice to be able to see what gear the game suggests you use and then be able to fully tweak it out a different way if you want.
