A next-gen update for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 has now been confirmed by Massive. An appointment for this is also in the room.
For a long time it was unclear whether Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment were working on a next-gen upgrade for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. Now one thing is certain: there will be these improvements. In addition to details on the content, a date was also announced: February 2, 2021
The Division 2, like so many other titles, is currently only playable on the new consoles with backwards compatibility. With the new improvements, The Division 2 will run on the PS5 and Xbox Series X in 4K resolution and at 60 fps. For the Series S, the developers of Massive Entertainment have specified lower values with 1080p and 60 fps.
The patch should also appear on all supported platf orms. However, the improvements in visual performance only relate to the two next-gen consoles. It remains to be seen whether the update will change the technology on the last-gen consoles at all or whether Massive will once again only turn around gameplay and balance.
In addition, Massive announced that it will continue to support The Division 2 with new content regardless of the platform chosen. So you can fight your way through Washington, DC and New York in 2021 on the hunt for ever better loot.
