Ubisoft delays The Division until Q1 2016

A couple of months ago, we reported that The Division was on track for a 2015 release. Not so fast, according to Ubisoft, which today announced that the MMO shooter’s launch is being pushed back to “the first quarter of calendar year 2016.”

No reason is given for the delay beyond the usual PR-speak about ensuring that the game meets high expectations. Ubisoft also says that it will “show you more next month at E3.”

ZOMG Mike, you’re scarin’ me!  So what polish do you use on your never-fail crystal ball?  And you are in the wrong business– you could be making a fortune with your own soothsayer.com web site….

If the 2015 release is like ESO release and the 2016 release is ESO 1.6 update then go for it and release it on 2016. I am still try to convince my friends of how much better ESO is now but they are still scared of their initial experience of the game. ESO is an example that stands for almost all MMOs. Delay and release when ready. Initial experience is 80%+ of success.

Isn’t this one another of their multi-studio games? Like four different studios spread across the world making this one? Because that worked out so well for them with AC: U.
