In their earnings report for the fiscal year, popular game developer/publisher Ubisoft revealed that they have set a release window for their upcoming title Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. The game is one of three that the company plans to ship between now on March 31, 2019.

The other two games Ubisoft plans to release in this time frame are The Crew 2 and an as of yet unannounced AAA title.

In other words, all three new games can be expected before this time next year. It’s also worth mentioning that the first Tom Clancy’s The Division was released in early March 2016, meaning the time between it and its sequel being launched could very well be two years exactly.

Ubisoft also took the time to explain a little bit of what fans should be able to expect from The Division 2. The company’s CEO Yves Guillemot stated that the game was being worked on by various development teams who are trying to ensure that this new game has more content to offer players than its predecessor did.

Guillemot explained that “we were surprised a little bit by how fast people consumed content on [The Division].” In turn, plans for The Division 2 will include new content being added post-launch quickly and in large quantities to keep players invested.

Ubisoft also acknowledged that the end-game content in the original Division as being rather lackluster and another thing they want to improve upon with the sequel. Company CFO Alain Martinez said that “what we call the end-game part was something that [The Division] could have improved, and we believe that we’ve got it now [in The Division 2].”

The full reveal of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 will take place at Ubisoft’s E3 2018 press briefing on June 11.
