Tom Clancy's The Division

Ubisoft has once again delayed the release of its highly anticipated open world RPG shooter Tom Clancy's The Division. The game will now be coming out in the first quarter of 2016, rather than sometime in 2015, for the Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4 platforms.

Ubisoft revealed the delay via a statement posted on the game's official website. It didn't go into details about why the launch date was changed, saying only that Ubisoft and its development teams "want to ensure the game not only meets our high expectations but also those of our fans and players alike." The Division was first announced at E3 in June 2013 for a planned release in 2014. Ubisoft later decided to push the release date into 2015 before today's announcement.

Ubisoft also mentioned the new release date for The Division in its quarterly financial statements today, adding that the first quarter of 2016 will also see the launch of a currently unnamed "new triple-A title."
