Back in May last year it was announced thatTom Clancy's The Divisionuntil 2015, and Ubisoft has decided to commemorate the occasion by delaying the game again, this time until 2016.
The news was unceremoniously revealed in Ubisoft's 2015 financial earnings presentation, the .pdf of which you canif you really want to bore yourself insensible.
According to the document, the open world MMO shooter will ship in the fourth quarter of Ubisoft's 2016 fiscal year. That should fall somewhere between January and March.
"It is never an easy decision to move a launch date," Ubisoft's CEO Yves Guillemot, but he maintained that the delay is a move "that has always benefited the company."
The Division takes place in a New York devastated by a mysterious plague. Humans being humans, the survivors have decided to gather into factions and kick seven shades of crap out of each other, and the titular Division has to run around cleaning up the mess. The game will have light RPG elements, a crafting system, and presumably lots of towers to climb in order to unlock stuff. It is a Ubisoft game after all.
