Tom Clancy’s The Division launched back in 2016, and developer Massive Entertainment has been keeping up support for the game since. Massive’s Managing Director David Polfeldt, in an interview with IGN, discussed the studio’s continued support for its game and the future of the franchise.
Polfeldt spoke optimistically on the subject of potential sequels or offshoots of the game. “I think it’s a wonderful, wonderful brand that has so many potential stories in it. There are a lot of things that we didn’t do in The Division 1 that are interesting to look at for that brand,” said Polfeldt. “I definitely think there’s lots of space for continuation which is beyond just keeping The Division online. But…I can’t talk about that too much right now.”
Polfeldt’s use of “The Division 1″ in his statement is particularly interesting, though nothing about a sequel has been confirmed or officially announced yet. The Division‘s Update 1.8 just launched earlier this month, and Polfeldt assured players that Massive would be supporting the game for the foreseeable future.
“I think of [supporting the game and players] as kind of a relationship. As long as you go to another date with your gamers and you feel pretty excited about it, and they seem to be excited too, that’s not when you stop dating,” Polfeldt said. “The way we see it is that our first obligation is to make The Division awesome. That’s not something that ended on launch day…I do think we are much closer today, especially after [Update] 1.8, to the game that we wanted to create, and also to the game that gamers were expecting at launch already.”
Tom Clancy’s The Division is available now for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
