Callum drops in with some much awaited news on The Division. He also discusses the drip feed style of information distribution this game has seen thus far.
If the division doesn't get a release date soon I think it will not be coming out this year. It will be all on rainbow six seige. Personally I think the division will be out mid to late next year.
Yeah I tend to agree. It's been so long with no word on release date or even additional info.
It will most likely get one at E3 next month.
For some reason Ubisoft games tend to get overhyped more than they deserve.
I feel you on this bro
Here's the thing about The Division... it's going to be the cool game to hate by the time it comes out. Regardless if it deserves it.
If they take their time and make it a great game, no one will hate it. If they release a broken piece of crap (like Unity) or show amazing gameplay and graphics and then nerf it (like Watch Dogs), people will be pissed and hate it. Though seeing as they now have 4 devs (all in different countries) working together on the game, hopefully it comes out OK. Hopefully the phrase "too many cooks in the kitchen" doesn't come into play.
I was thinking of writing that in the article, but suddenly I was in a loop of singing Too Many Cooks
I agree with you for the most part and they should take their time and complete their project, but it's impossible to make something that nobody hates, let alone a videogame. There's always gonna be haters.
I really don't think this will make it this year, i hope i am wrong though.
I doubt they would keep throwing more studios into the mix if they didn't intend on releasing it this year.
delay Another time wont make it GOLD. Only worse. This game had the potential to be 2014 GOTY but something Went wrong beacuse the delay after delay....
I really do think this is thee console mmo everyone is waiting for. MMO'S don't take 2y to make. With that said I hope it's good, this has to be one of my most anticipated games this gen so far.
i can't see them releasing this and rainbow six in the same time frame.
I hope it's a bit like GRAW 1 and 2. GRAW was such a great game. Gameplay was fantastic.
I've heard that this game's been in development for many years prior to the public announcement in 2013's E3. Hopefully, all the time and money spent is just them ensuring that the game is going to be amazing?
I hope this game gets delayed for obvious reason.
ive lost interest in this game... no news not even a single screenshot. I cant express my feelings for that... my thoughs is that the idea of The division was wrong and it didnt work so they had to delay the game over and over again and now when the pieces beginning to come togheter more people have lost interest in this game. Better games are coming this and next year. 2014 was a good year to release the game for it to be the GOTY but not anymore. Meaby i have wrong meaby not. But i really hope this game will be good for a MP only game.
Honestly though, maybe it's not all that bad. I mean... think about Watch Dogs, Destiny and Titan Fall. There was so much advertising going on before the game, so much in your face stuff that hype was EXPLOSIVE. And then, ultimately, people were disappointed - living up to those expectations for any game would be difficult... Maybe they're just learning from the past year's launches. Or... they have nothing. Lol!
You definitely have to strike a balance. Too much advertising sets a really high bar and too little leaves people scratching their heads. That being said, making players wait 3 years isn't a great marketing tactic either.
See what I don't understand is if a Dev floods the internet with news about their game, people complain about it. If a Dev keeps their mouth shut and works their asses off, people complain and say the game will suck and everything is falling apart.. When the game was announced, if I recall correctly Massive never gave a release date. Some Ubisoft rep did say something about 2014 but a Massive Dev laughed at that and said work was literally just beginning on the game (if I can find the article I'll link it). Also, you can play the entire game Single Player. Yes you'd technically need to be online, but it is not multiplayer only. While I'd love for this game to release this year, I'm fine with it releasing when it's done. I'm sure there will be a concrete answer to the release date question in a few weeks at E3
Im not interested anymore, its been so long, i feel like i already played it somehow. What is taking them so long?? (I dont normally complain about about delays as there are good reasons usually, but i guess all the negative rumours about downgrades and long wait is really wearing my patience down) Hope it proves me wrong though
It never had a release date, how was it delayed? I do agree that it was revealed way to early.
On more than one occasion, shareholders were told Q4 of 2014, and then told it has been delayed
well, the delay itself isn't what is bothering me, its the wait. I don't mind "delays" its just a word, but the wait is somehow taken away the feeling that this is a new IP for me. Also i believe what Callumjack says is correct, i could of sworn they gave a rough release date.
I just wish they would announce games a little closer to being released.. Hype trains are far to delayed.
Seriously... it's hard to stay excited about a game for 3 years
No release date, no hypness
I'm still pretty hype for this game but I completely understand and actually agree with all the skeptics. It's honestly way better to be skeptical of huge games like this cause it puts it on the developers to prove to us that it's worth our interest rather then have then waiting to take our money
I preordered this when I bought my ps4, the receipt is starting to fade and I shit you not I think the text on the preorder receipt will be gone by the release of this game.
I feel like I keep hearing about this game but dont know anything about it at all. Wonder if it'll ever get released.
