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:

Tom Clancy's The Division

Release date — TBA 2015
Developer — Massive Entertainment
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.

      Console players hatred on PC gamers is pathetic to say the least. Console gamers should be thanking PC gamers because the gaming industry wouldn't be where it is today without them. Major titles wouldn't even exist. Call of Duty, Battlefield, TOM CLANCY!, Sim series, and so much more.Consoles may be easier for developers to create games, but for PC gaming, the market is limitless, and I mean that in every imaginable way.FYI You are welcome Console Gamers.
    • Tony on August 20, 2013
      Well the games are made on the PC, faggot.
    • Flixe on August 23, 2013
      Hmpf, I'm not quite sure what you mean. We (the 'whiny and privileged') often times have more money to spend than console gamers, and we're often willing to pay more for a good product. Developers cry about piracy, but keep releasing half-assed ports that we don't really need or want. And that is why the dear developers develop games for your shitty little console, instead of the PC, which would be better for everyone involved.
    • Ctrl-Alt-Rage on August 31, 2013
      Over privileged?Don't be jelly we have a kick ass machine to pretty much dominate any console that will ever come out because we have disposable income that we earned.Maybe you should go to McDonald's and pick up an application and stop asking your parents for money so you can cruise to your local gamestop for a midnight release while I sit in my underwear and play the release before you even swipe your dad's credit card.But seriously, you're being an ass.
    • Jake on September 8, 2013
      Fuck you ya fuckin shitbrick. At least I don't have my head stuck 14' up my ass like yall fucking console peasants do.
    • Whatever on November 7, 2013
      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.

    Fantastic Announcement Guys. Great to see you listening to your community and we understand it is an additional workload for you so really power to you guys for doing so. I and several friends will certainly be purchasing it for PC now! Bring it on and hopefully it lives up to the the expectation - A true open-world mmo AAA shooter with a persistent sandbox.
  13. Shad0w on August 20, 2013
    Mehh marketing spin.............say your aren't making it for PC and ask if there is interest in the game, then say you listened to your PC fans.How about stop screwing with PC gamers in the first place market for PC from the start and stop given us watered down console ports ........... Example look at E3 demonstrations for Far Cry 3 and then play it maxed on a gaming PC it looks no where as good.Either give us PC gamers the tools/mod surport to run the game with 300% foliage / texture turned up max hell let us melt our cards if we want but stop lieing to us about the game quality with pre renderd screens. And stop catering to the lowest systems give us a proper PC version.THIS BETTER NOT HAPPEN TO WATCH DOGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Gregg Seymour on August 20, 2013
      Whilst I do agree with you on crappy ports your attitude is all wrong. It is a developers prerogative to release their game on whatever platform they deem most viable. From the outset they said no PC release for The Division. We, the PC community asked for a PC version and they have listened and have now announced a PC release and promised that it be of quality. Until such time as we can say for sure that it is either a port or not there is no need to be angry!
      • M3ATSHI3LD on August 23, 2013
        We already know it will be a port, just like all other Ubisoft games. Ubisoft is probably the worst company of them all when it comes to PC game support. PC is such an afterthought, that the last 3 Ubisoft titles I purchased on PC at release wouldn't work for up to 2 weeks because Ubisoft 'forgot' to add in proper support for mouse and keyboard.Hope they do better here, but I won't cross my fingers.
        • Gregg Seymour on September 5, 2013
          People tend to assume ports are terrible and for the most part that is fair enough. However that doesn't mean that all ports are crap because they aren't. FYI - the new x86 architecture on the next gen consoles make porting to PC very easy and seamless. Interestingly, during both PAX and Gamescon several of the next gen console titles were being demo-ed on PC.

    But will people on PC be able to play in the same world or on the same servers as people on PS4 or XB1
    • Jeff on August 20, 2013
      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!
      • person on November 26, 2013
        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.
        • TehAsian on March 19, 2014
          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.
  22. Xer on August 20, 2013
    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.
    • Gregg Seymour on August 20, 2013
      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!
      • M3ATSHI3LD on August 23, 2013
        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.
        • Gregg Seymour on September 5, 2013
          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!!
  23. Grant Rietze on August 20, 2013
    I'll be pre-ordering as soon as it's listed on Steam!
  24. Utkarsh Dwivedi on August 20, 2013

  25. Thomas on August 20, 2013
  26. Brutaller on August 20, 2013
    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. Brutaller
  27. TheDark on August 20, 2013
    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!
  28. HOTDOGVNDR on August 20, 2013
    WOOHOO! This makes me a happy man!
  29. EA on August 20, 2013
    Thank you, Ubi.Now if only Square sees this...
  30. AyexeM on August 20, 2013
    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? :)
  31. Foley on August 20, 2013
    This is indeed nice news, lets wait and see what comes from it.
  32. Joe Shmoe on August 20, 2013
    Thank you Ubisoft... Just for that and listening to your PC community I'll make sure to get both copies.
  33. HerkDerp on August 20, 2013
    Now we can only hope it doesn't turn out to be a console port..
  34. Nokosage on August 21, 2013
    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.
  35. painface on August 26, 2013
    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.
  36. Lucas on August 27, 2013
    Now i Buy it!

  42. Endurance on October 11, 2013
    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

  44. Mark on October 15, 2013
    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.

  54. D-500 on February 9, 2014
    Thanks.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.
  55. Masta on May 29, 2014
    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.
  56. Riki on July 6, 2014
    Ok Can you now make it X-Platform with Ps3 :D
  57. Jose on September 12, 2014
    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.
  58. Dark DOG on October 2, 2014
    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.

Have something to say?
