THE DIVISION IS REPORTEDLY GETTING A BATTLE ROYALE TO RIVAL WARZONE & APEX LEGENDS

WHAT HAPPENED?

Speaking on his Game Mess show, insider Jeff Grubb claimed that the shelved battle royale for The Division has been retrieved from the proverbial shelf following Hyper Scape’s failure.

Codename Reaper is a The Division stand-alone battle royale. It was shelved last year after some bad player impressions, but now Ubisoft has restarted work on it. They really want a successful battle royale. Reworking is a big word, it’s more of a re-tooling with rogue-like features.

They have also pledged to support The Division 2 into its fifth year, in much the same way Rainbow Six Siege is going strong in its seventh year since launch.

Whether a BR in the vein of The Division will be successful is another matter but, as Fortnite, Apex and Warzone continue to dominate the F2P gaming scene, Ubisoft appears ready to throw down the gauntlet.
