The Division 2 set to launch within a year

We know The Division 2 is a thing, but at its reveal, nothing was said about, well, anything. Certainly not when we can expect to see it. Ubisoft is going to reveal the game at E3 in June, but thanks to a financial report via PC Gamer we do at least now know a fairly speedy release is planned.

Ubisoft is aiming to release The Division 2 in the 2018-19 fiscal year, which means by April 2019. What's also interesting to highlight in the report is that the current The Division game has over 20 million registered players. So there's sure to be some interest in the sequel.

Ubisoft is also planning to launch The Crew 2 and one more AAA "unannounced franchise title" which feels quite a bit like Assassin's Creed, but we'll have to wait to E3 to find out more it seems.

Also of note is that Far Cry 5 had an extremely successful launch, Ubisoft's second biggest launch ever. Deserved success for a company that many can agree is taking a positive approach to its games and the post-launch support of them.
