As it is celebrating one year of life, let’s look back at The Division, and see what worked, what didn’t, and what has happened since the launch.
On the plus side, The Division was one of Ubisoft’s biggest launches ever, with the developer going so far as to say that it sold more in 24 hours than any other title they have ever made. The downside, though, was that the game has had numerous bugs and glitches that have wreaked havoc on players. So much so that the game is in a constant state of patches and fixes. While that is common for a game of this size, it didn’t help when old bugs kept reappearing, and other issues weren’t solved.
The other problem was with content, though there was a lot to do, it quickly ended up being boring, which resulted (along with the bug issues) in a massive amount of players leaving the game and Ubisoft struggling to get them back.
Yet, all was not lost. As the major DLC additions of The Underground, Survival and The Last Stand has not only added major new content sections and modes to the game, but it’s breathed life back into those who play it, thus making the game as good as it was when it launched last year.
What the legacy of The Division will be is still up in the air, but it’s hard to deny that the game has made the most of its situation, and is still trucking on with no plans of stopping at present.
