Ubisoft’s division is said to have some kind of battle royale spin-off. Ubisoft does its best to create many different games and experiences within its vast amount of franchises. Unfortunately, it looks like some of them are starting to backfire. Ubisoft unfortunately canceled VR exploded cell and a Ghost Recon spin-off the other day and is ultimately struggling to find its footing with all of its IP. While its mainline titles for games like Assassin’s Creed are huge hits, there’s not as much thought or purpose in these spin-offs that can chase the gravy train as games like Call of Duty: Warzone are driving right now.
Nevertheless, Ubisoft will try to look into it a little more by apparently creating a new The Division spin-off. According to insider and journalist Jeff Grubb, Ubisoft is working on a standalone battle royale game set in the Division universe. The report notes that this game was in development until last year, when it was scrapped after poor responses during player testing. After Hyperscape was shut down, Ubisoft returned to the project to “retool” it. The publisher would be very interested in having their own great Battle Royale game and sees this new Division game as the answer. Not much else is known about the game, but it will feature “red type features”. For now, Ubisoft has not yet announced an official announcement. The Division 3 and that doesn’t seem to be the case, at least in its current form.
It’s unclear when it should be released, but it looks like Ubisoft has already laid the groundwork for the new Division Battle Royale and is trying to revamp it. The game description is also incredibly broad, so it’s hard to imagine the game Grubb specifically described, but it makes sense on paper. The Division has a post-apocalyptic world full of people killing each other for loot, so it’s not hard to imagine a battle royale set in this universe.
