Tom Clancy's The Division Heartland

The Division Heartland is Officially Dead But Division 3 isn’t

Ubisoft has cancelled The Division Heartland. The game, which was announced back in 2021 as a free-to-play successor to the popular Tom Clancy series, is no more. According to Ubisoft, the studio has larger plans to focus its resources on “bigger opportunities”.

The Division Heartland was in development for a number of years. The game was showcased throughout its development cycle with multiple closed alpha tests being hosted by Ubisoft. Many of which resulted in gameplay leaks surfacing online.

Ubisoft went radio silent regarding The Division Heartland in 2023 with very little information regarding the game made public. However, the studio did announce that it was officially developing a sequel in the series – The Division 3.

The cancellation of The Division Heartland isn’t good news for Ubisoft. Considering the game’s development cycle, Ubisoft has simply thrown money into a fire to create another game which has been axed. The studio has cancelled multiple games over the past few years including Project Q and Ghost Recon Frontline.

Ubisoft’s so-called “bigger opportunities” are likely based around developing The Division 3. The game will likely be a much better experience than The Division Heartland given its paid experience and lack of free-to-play elements.

Keep in mind that Ubisoft’s The Division 2 is now entering its sixth year on the market and the game boasts an impressive player count. Ubisoft has also supported the game with live service updates, expansions and seasonal content.

If Division 3 is even half of the experience, Ubisoft has made the right move. However, given how Ubisoft only just announced the sequel, we likely won’t see it for a few years.
