The original game is still alive and kicking.
The Division recently got a pretty huge free update that dealt with many of the game’s issues from weapons to game modes to location layout, with many people hailing it as the reason to come back to, or finally start playing, the game.
In an interview with IGN managing director David Polfeldt said that there is a will to take the game beyond the first iteration:
“I think it’s a wonderful, wonderful brand that has so many potential stories in it. There are a lot of things that we didn’t do in The Division 1 that are interesting to look at for that brand.”
I definitely think there’s lots of space for continuation which is beyond just keeping The Division online. But…I can’t talk about that too much right now.”
Polfeldt also said that the devs are committed to supporting the game long term.
