Apparently there are concerns that the Windows PC version of The Division is being delayed or “held back.” Ubisoft has now spoken out to Gamespot and denied such concerns. It was based around a developer saying that it was important The Division on PC remain “in check” with the console editions.
Recently a team member talked about the game on PC having to remain “in check” with the versions on the consoles. However, this caused community members to believe that this could cause the game on PC to get delayed. According to a statement from a Ubisoft representative: “It has come to our attention that a comment from one of our team members has been perceived by some members of the community to imply the PC version of The Division was ‘held back’ and this is simply not true.”
The rep continued: “From the beginning, the PC version of The Division was developed from the ground up, and we’re confident players will enjoy the game and the features this version has to offer. And the feedback from PC players who participated in the recent closed beta supports this.”
The anonymous developer for The Division who made the original statement said, “It would be kind of unfair to push [the PC version] so far away from [the console versions].” In addition, he added, “I’m really happy that we’re pushing the PC build as much as we are; there’s a lot more customized options than the console.”
Honestly, another delay for The Division at this point would not be surprise. However, that does not seem to be the case here. The game has already been pushed back quite a bit from when it was first announced.
The Division is only one month away from its long awaited release. The game hits the shelves on March 8 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
