Are Ubisoft Leaving The Division To Rot?

After leaving Rainbow Six: Siege to wilt in the corner, it seems Ubisoft are slowly doing the same with The Division. Boring updates and a lack of bug fixes are slowly killing the game. The lack of direction in how to deal with hackers (not to mention the IP{ leaks when using voice chat) in the Dark Zone is also a issue.

Would be a shame if Ubisoft would leave it to rot, hopefully not!

ThePope1098d ago

Massive, the developer is top notch I don't think they are leaving anything to rot. The issue lies in the fact that you can burn through the content so fast if you try hard enough. That and the lack of true PvP to distract you from the main game. They should really attempt to release content faster or introduce PvP as a stand alone free update ASAP.

I'm predominantly an so gamer so forgive my ignorance on this, but does a game like this live & die off of repetition & any "replayability" garnered through it, or are there any similar games that offered enough of a memorable & impactful experience that gamers would feel like they got their money's worth out of a single cycle of playtime?

As an sp gamer, the games I love are the ones that left a mark on me when I had my first playthrough, and the ones that push me to playthrough again from time to time to recapture that spark. Any game like that & $60 is almost a steal for me. I don't need to get hundreds of hours of play time, I just need to have the hours I sink into it mean something to me. Does The Division offer that or is that rare in the mp space? I know I made memories I'll never forget in Goldeneye & Ive heard of countless memories made in the Halo series, but most of the others seem more like flavor of the week kinda things that just make your console useful for a few weeks, then it's on to the next one. Just a strange gaming experience for me comin from the sp side of things.

This is the problem with mmo's. It's VERY difficult to keep up with the content....almost impossible. It's money first, and they aren't gonna keep a huge team working on a game for years and years unless it's extremely lucrative. It's better to make another game.

TheArkatek1098d ago

Ubisoft use to be one of my favorite dens. Now they just continue to disappoint and piss me off. The Division is just the tip of the iceberg. Look at R6 Seige. They come out with doc once a quarter and give 1 new map with the new operators. As if they cannot at least release more maps in between. They are quickly becoming the new EA if they are not there already.

@isabelle

Working from home is not the solution for all problems. Even if he earned 14000 per month then ubisoft would keep on dissapointing him.

Garethvk1098d ago

I just spoke to the rep yesterday. He said it is a big game and it will take many time to complete so not to worry there is plenty to come.

rdgneoz31098d ago

If you did "talk to the rep", then "it is a big game and it will take many time to complete so not to worry there is plenty to come" could mean it's a big game with a lot to do (which after 30 isn't really true - 4 challenging missions and 1 horde mode [hard is OK, challenging is impossible trying it legit - lvl 34 yellow shot gunners...]), there is more to come. Or it will take a while to work out the bugs, don't worry, we figured you'd beta test it for us. I'm going with the later, seeing as they seriously don't know how to fix their own game and their community developer streams an incursion run with a group of known glitchers and defends them...

Garethvk1098d ago

I have not had any issues with it. I just wrote him to say that due to travel and being stuck in an area of the game I have not completed it as of yet but so far I am enjoying it and I know there is DLC and more content to come as well as fixes. They see this game as a franchise with multiple titles so I would be shocked if they do not listen to the fans and work to address concerns.

MagicBeanz1097d ago

"it will take many time to complete" LOL.

Lonnie181098d ago

Sure seems like it, why just yesterday I was trying to have a little fun in the DZ and rouges, rouges, over powered rouges in groups of 4 everywhere! Can't even beat the Incursion even with gear level of 174 and a team of 4, what a shame, I really liked The Division even got the plat, but now I think I will not be getting the dlc...

mrmonk1098d ago

I hope not I'm enjoying the game i do hope they fix it soon...I was the same couldn't clear the incursion with 3 friends all between gr 175 & 189 I'm 189.I joined a random squad today via matchmaking they where between gr190 & 200 we stayed in the middle underground & cleared it in half an hour.

N311V1098d ago

Looks to me like they need to lower the difficulty a little. I believe gear will drop from the boss at GS191 which isn't much use if you're already GS190-200. Although most enemies in the hard mode Incursion are purple Veterans, they feel like they have more armor than normal, perhaps that could be lowered.

PixelGateUk1098d ago

The Dark Zone was always going to require fine tuning and moderating, just a shame they couldn't keep up with the pace

Kyizen1097d ago

Nah the issue is the exploit in the new incursions lets people get all the really good gear fast. So then you people these people in the DZ and get owned. It's just not fair to those who don't cheat.

Elda1097d ago

The rouges just makes it annoying when you're trying to farm loot & earn exp.I wish they just had an area for rouges & they could just kill each other all day & night if they choose.

No, They aren't. Stop spreading panic.

PixelGateUk1098d ago

Could say the same to you, if i used your logic of 'i disagree, thus i am correct and they are wrong'

BEASELY1097d ago

Sorry, but you're overblowing these small problems. It's a giant product still in its infancy. Hackers? You mean level 90+ in groups of 4? That's not hacking, just mathematics. If there are any "hackers," it's strictly a PC problem, as with all PC games.

Askanison41097d ago

Whaaaat? Stop spreading panic? BUT TEH VIEWS!

How many articles have popped up to the top on here in the last few days all with the same rhetoric? It's all about dem views, people!

Starcommand1097d ago

Askanison4 - cool x-men Reference bro .......regardless of the rhetoric do you not admit that some people could be abusing the system and getting such a high gore skier that when we all hit up the DZ they will just overpower everyone else ?
