The Division 2 on PS5 and Xbox Series Is Unlikely as Developer Won’t Leave Last-Gen Players Behind
Ubisoft says The Division 2 is unlikely to see native PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions.
talk MP1stcreative director Yannick Banchereau explained why Ubisoft didn’t release a new version of the game on the current generation of consoles.
“There’s only one version of the game available for all platforms, so if you want to get the most out of them, that’s because maxing them out means the game won’t be available in older generations. Not really,” he said.
Banschreau continues: Now, whenever we add something, we try to make it work smoothly even on older generations. ”
There won’t be a PS5 or Xbox Series X|S version of The Division 2 anytime soon, but Ubisoft has released a patch for those consoles in 2021 that will give the game 4K and 60 FPS upgrades.
Ubisoft has already confirmed five years of support for The Division 2 starting in June 2023, with Season 1 including a roguelite feature called Descent Mode.
IGN’s The Division 2 review said: It wasn’t until about the end of my 60 hours of play that I started to suffer from a lack of interesting incentives, but the trip was fun enough to make up for the destination. ”
