'Tom Clancy's: The Division' release date; gameplay set for E3


The upcoming open world third-person survival shooter role-playing video game that is currently being developed by French multinational video game developer Ubisoft is expected to be released far earlier than its proposed release date, which was originally expected to be somewhere in 2016. According to VC Post, the post-apocalyptic title will be available on next generation platforms which includes PS4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows.

The website states that "Tom Clancy's: The Division" could come as early as October, 2015. According to Gospel Herald, during the Game Developer's Conference that was held earlier this month in San Francisco, Ubisoft's CEO Yves Guillemot stated that the official launch date of the upcoming title could be "any time between now to March 31, 2016." The timeline stated by the executive is a very long one, considering the fact that a minute gameplay video of "Tom Clancy's: The Division" was teased at the E3 2013 event, indicating that the video game should have been released by now.

Initially, "Tom Clancy's: The Division" was only supposed to be released for next generation consoles, but Ubisoft stated that if it would receive positive responses from the PC gaming community, the company would be convinced on bringing the game to the Microsoft Windows platform. Later on, Ubisoft announced that "Tom Clancy's: The Division" was in fact coming for the aforementioned platform due to the "vocal and passionate PC community."

It is expected that during the E3 2015, Ubisoft will be showcasing a gameplay video of the title that will be glitch free. With numerous visual and technical issues experienced by gamers in titles such as "Assassin's Creed: Unity" and "Far Cry 4," the gaming community will be skeptical with the company's claims. While it cannot be confirmed how optimized the title is going to be before it officially launches, perhaps the upcoming gameplay video will provide the necessary elements needed for convincing the gaming public.
