The Division Confirmed for PC

You asked for it (at least judging from the hundreds of comments on this UbiBlog post when the game was first revealed – and the thousands of comments on Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere). And now Ubisoft is delivering. Today, Ubisoft confirmed that along with the previously announced PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, Tom Clancy’s The Division will be available on PC as well.

The Division

Why PC… and why now? Much of the credit goes to the vocal and passionate PC community. “Since E3 we have been carefully listening to what has been said on the internet,” said Executive Producer Fredrik Rundqvist. “I can’t stress enough how important it has been for us to feel your support, interest and commitment to the game. Your opinions matter to us. The positive energy you bring back to the team will help us create the best game possible. One of the most frequently discussed topics has been that of releasing The Division on PC. With that in mind, I’m very pleased to announce that the game will be available on PC. Massive Entertainment has its roots in PC development with titles like Ground Control and World in Conflict. You can be certain that we will provide you with a first-rate PC experience.”

We’ll have even more new intel about The Division from Gamescom 2013 later this week. Until then, prepare yourself to face the coming crisis with these other UbiBlog features:

A devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City, and one by one, basic services fail. In only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The Division, a classified unit of self-supported tactical agents, is activated. Leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, Division agents are trained to operate independently in order to save society. When society falls, your mission begins.

What's this??? they hear our support from the PC community??? WTF man PC is where your stuff started so if anyone should be showing support it should have been you for the PC people out there not us having to show you we wanted it. Man o Man looks like the big guys are forgetting where they started o yeah that's right it happens to all companies. PFT consider my support revoked, NOW WIN ME BACK like you should have been in the first place. pft.

I have no intention to offend the developers, and I want this game on PC.

But the devs must understand Ubisoft reputation on the PC Market will hit the sales hard.

Ubisoft is knowned for bad ports, and lack of support on PC.

Splinter Cell Conviction, Assassin's Creed 3 and Watch_Dogs are good examples of Ubisoft horrible ports and support.

What I don't understand is why developers think that pc gamers wouldn't want games like these? Especially ubisoft. If the pc gaming community dies out its only because the developers don't think pc gamers exist for their games :\. I do appreciate Ubisoft listening to us but I would have liked for us to be included to begin with.

I will most probably get this game somewhere down the line.

Just one question: This one has no monthly fees, does it?

I wouldn't like a MMO where I have to pay every month.

I'm willing to pay a normal game price like for any other Tom Clancy game.

Anyway, hope the PC version will be bought and thank you for listening to your fans on PC.

I think that it should be cross-platform but players would have a choice between playing with their own type of console. This would be good so that people wouldn't have to choose between friends to play with.

I'm happy for you guys but still a bit dissappointed. I understand their choice but would've liked it being something special for us consolers. But I must say that you are just as dumb as him if you keep feeding the troll. He probably won't change his opinion. :I

Whatever 5pts

I'm a console player myself and I'm happy for you guys. Even though I'm a bit jelly. I mean, you often get the best. But this guy is a nobody and probably won't change his opinion unless he gets a pc himself. Don't care about him. But if it makes you feel any better, keep shouting at him.

I have been a massive fan of console games but i am now currently making my own gaming PC so not all console gamers hate PC gamers. I think with PC gaming is better and more mature on PC then consoles.

Yes!!!!!! Extremely excited. Hope there is a solid anti cheat

Endurance 5pts

its good to know that some publishers actually listen to the community.. don't follow the same path ROCKSTARGAMES did.. although GTA V made billions in a few days, their fanbase was VERY unsatisfied and disappointed.. releasing "The Division" to PC will not only increase your sales, but also your ratings. Happy customers will always look to buy games from UBISOFT in the future :D

I signed the petition...even though i would like to believe ubisoft was already working on the pc version. Pr stunt in my opinion to boost and guarantee sales for pc. I'm happy and will be even more happy if they deliver on the quality that pc should have.

Nokosage 5pts

The problem is, ubisoft is fucking notorious for publishing rendered screenshots that make it look way more interactive and polished than it will ever be.

FC3 was a disappointment compared to what they showed, but at least it was still good.

Now we can only hope it doesn't turn out to be a console port..

This is indeed nice news, lets wait and see what comes from it.

That first gameplay trailer got me very excited. It seemed to be the opposite of the modern military shooter that has become so ubiquitous. Then I saw they had no plans to publish to PC and I tried to forget I ever saw the video. Now I am back full circle and and can appreciate the prelaunch news once again! Now can we get another gameplay video? :)

EA 5pts

Thank you, Ubi.

Now if only Square sees this...


WOOHOO! This makes me a happy man!

TheDark 5pts

I just want to say a huge thank you to Ubisoft and Massive for making this happen. I could not be more stoked to be able to play the game on my preferred platform when it's released!

Brutaller 5pts

Pleased to hear that and im looking forward to it. BUT will The Division be just another emulated-xbox-controls-are-hell game? or will you do something thats rare today? like totally remake the controls so they dont suck like in Darksiders II. or Borderlands2 ? i hope you have that in mind.

That's why I love Ubisoft. Not Rockstar. Rockstar doesn't listen to us. Ubisoft did.

And anyways, everyone knows UBISOFT is the BEST game developer EVER!

Anyone who thinks this wasn't already planned for pc is falling for a marketing ploy.

Ubi just wants people to grovel before they give them nice things.

Well, its also good to say (for a PC gamer anyways) that I could have been owned by a console player or a someone playing on a game pad. Even though they do have a disadvantage, they always will find a way to outclass a gamer with the best gear out there. I play a game called "War Thunder" and there has always been a feud between the mouse and keyboard community and the joystick community. I've seen joystick users outclassed by mouse and keyboard and vise versa. It doesn't matter what equipment is better, it's the player that really makes a difference.

What an idiotic comment! Unlike yourself, these are grown men who have better things to do with their time than incite grovelling. In actual fact they are feeling out the PC market so as to ascertain whether or not it is viable for them to put their efforts into releasing it for PC. In this case they have made an educated decision based on potential user feedback!

Jeff 5pts

Honestly, I really don't mind if we can't. Cross platform is nice for some games but shooters don't really work too well. PC gamers tend to have an advantage.

Also, thank you so much Ubisoft! I'm thrilled to see this coming to PC!


I think you are greatly mistaken. Not announcing a PC release was definitely a marketing ploy. Almost all of Ubisoft's games are ported for PC, especially the Tom Clancy games. Based on previous sales of anything with the name Tom Clancy, the decision was made long ago whether or not the financial benefit was there.

You are right though, these are grown men (and women), that are very educated in marketing, and thus your argument about adults not manipulating others, resulting in grovelling, misses the mark. The intent may not have been to illicit the literal act of grovelling, but grovelling was the side-affect of a marketing ploy intended to create higher sales on PC.

Well here is the thing - There is no market research that indicates lying about a PC port increases sales of a PC version when eventually announced. In fact what conversely ends up happening when a PC port/version is not announced people then tend to make their minds up and resign to buying it for console (most gamers I know have both a PC and console and I'm sure market data would suggest the same). So logically if you increase PC sales then your console sales decline because again people will generally buy one or the other. What you deem to be a "marketing ploy" is what we call "marketing research". Yes, we have a plan to release it on PC (and more than likely will do) if the community makes a "noise"-Adversely if no noise is created is it then worth our time to do so? This is feeling out the market!!
