We might get a Division sequel after all.
Tom Clancy’s The Division has done well in terms of sales and player base, especially with how focused Massive Entertainment is on releasing continuous updates and improving the overall experience.
Massive Entertainment’s Managing Director David Polfeldt was recently featured in an interview with IGN, where he didn’t rule out the possibility of developing a sequel, since “there’s lots of space for continuation.”
I think it’s a wonderful, wonderful brand that has so many potential stories in it. There are a lot of things that we didn’t do in The Division 1 that are interesting to look at for that brand. I definitely think there’s lots of space for continuation which is beyond just keeping The Division online. But…I can’t talk about that too much right now.
I think of [supporting the game and players] as kind of a relationship. As long as you go to another date with your gamers and you feel pretty excited about it, and they seem to be excited too, that’s not when you stop dating.
He continued to mention how impressed the team is with the current number of players engaged with the title, since the company projected a much smaller player base by now.
A long time ago, we assumed that we would have a much smaller player base by now, because we thought it would develop like many RPGs develop over time. But what has happened is that in fact with each patch since 1.4, the player base has been increasing again
Earlier this month, The Division received update 1.8, adding Horde mode and Team Deathmatch. Would you be excited for The Division 2?
