Players will be facing new threats with friends or alone.

Ubisoft have yet to confirm an official timeframe for their playtest schedule, though we can expect to receive an update in the near future on the heels of Ubisoft Forward on September 10, 2022.

The new Division game will depart further from the previous settings of New York City and Washington D.C, throwing players into a war-torn town in Middle America.

It was initially announced in May 2021, alongside a new mobile game and movie set to star Jake Gyllenhaal from Red Notice director Rawson Marshall Thurber.
