The Division 2 Single Player Mode

A single Tweet has caused mass speculation that The Division Single Player Mode may be in the works or at least a possibility, as a Ubisoft exec gets in on the action.


Not exactly being known for its credibility of news stories, the world wide web sometimes gets a bad wrap. However, sometimes there is a small story that becomes really big and becomes something of an engine that can drive an entity or a person to do something worthwhile.

One such story in the world of gaming has surfaced recently in the form of an ever so subtle Tweet that sent the gaming community into a frenzy, so much so that the organization in question might just take note.

I am referring to a recent Tweet by Tim Spencer, a Level Designer at TT Games who recently Tweeted:

I love the idea of a single player narrative driven spin-off of The Division Game. Focusing on an agent trying to get home to their family after being sent to NYC, during the SHD blackout from the fall of DC. TLOU x Division.”

This has sent shockwaves through the legion of fans of The Division series of games who are now petitioning for a single player character-based story-driven narrative version set in the game’s universe.

Ubisoft’s open-world online action game based on a Tom Clancy premise has recently released the second version of the popular game.

However, a lot of fans feel that while the setting for the game is intriguing i.e. the fall of a nation, the characters feel empty and hollow, being a multiplayer experience after all.

There is so much happening and that has happened in The Division’s story that a single player spin-off would work extremely well if developed properly, something which I wouldn’t doubt given Ubisoft’s track record with game narratives.

The Tweet posted by Tim Spencer got a lot of attention because Julian Gerighty, Creative Director of Ubisoft re-Tweeted Spencer’s Tweet, resulting in hundreds of comments on the post.

Many comments involved fans stating what they may like to see, however, some have speculated that the mere fact that Gerighty re-Tweeted Spencer’s post and commented on it may be a slight hint that something is already in the works.

The Division 2 has been well received however it did have some teething problems, mainly due to the game’s servers that have caused the player-base to dwindle, resulting in poor matchmaking experiences.

However thanks to a multitude of patches and fixes the game is starting to come alive again, as well as interest in the game now being re-sparked by the imminent release of a free DLC for the game.

Set for release on 23rd July 2019, the first of three scheduled episodes will take players out of Washington D.C and into new maps including a National Park camp, a Zoo, and a College.

In the tradition of most online games these days, the upcoming DLC will also include the obligatory slew of new weapons and gear as well as some new game modes to keep things exciting.

The Division 2 is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.

    Thanks for sharing this news. It’s good to see that developers at Ubisoft are hearing their fanbase and doing what they are asking for. The single-player mode sounds interesting. I’ll be cool to see the new release in action.

      Hi Ivan, thanks for commenting.

      There isn’t actually any word that this game is in development.

      All of this is pure rumor and speculation based upon some comments by a well-known level designer and a Ubisoft executive.

      Ubisoft hasn’t confirmed or denied that such a project exists.

      However, if it does, it will be totally awesome as Ubisoft games usually are.

      Cheers,
      Michael.
