Ubisoft “Not Ruling Out” PC Release Of Tom Clancy’s The Division
Tom Clancy’s The Division, a new IP currently in development at Ubisoft Massive, caused quite a stir when it was revealed at E3 during Ubisoft’s conference.
Although the excitement is a bit unfortunate, given that the game is only going to be releasing at the end of 2014. It will be on both PS4 and Xbox One, but many fans are upset about it neglecting PC, given that it’s a massive online game and would suit the platform well.

As is typical in a situation like this, a petition was drawn up in the past two weeks, and since its launch over 110,000 people have signed it in the hope that Ubisoft will release the game on PC.
A Ubisoft spokesperson, speaking to IGN in a recent video interview, said:
“We’re set for release in winter 2014 on PS4 and Xbox One, but we’re not ruling out other platforms because we do also read the internet.
“I think Ubisoft as a company considers maximising the potential of a game,” he added, “so if the audience is there and the desire is there…”
Ubisoft Massive creative director Niklas Cederstrom also said: “It’s very clear when you read the forums what people miss.”
I too find it puzzling as to why the game shouldn’t be on PC, but I don’t find it all that surprising why Ubisoft is neglecting it.
