On May 15, 2014, it was announced that The Division would be delayed until 2015, according to an anonymous source inside Ubisoft Massive studio. “The game engine works well, it’s not done, but works well. The actual game development has barely started, however,” said the anonymous insider. The Division uses Ubisoft’s new proprietary engine known as Snowdrop, which is made exclusively for next-gen consoles and PC, excluding the Wii U. On June 9, 2014, The Division was showcased at E3 2014 with an anticipated release for late 2015. However, on May 12, 2015, Ubisoft announced that the game had yet again been delayed until the following year. The Division is now expected in early 2016, two years after its initially planned release. During E3 2015, the game’s final release date and a player versus player mode called “Dark Zones” was announced. Its companion app was cancelled, as the company considered that the addition of drone will bring unfairness to the competitive multiplayer mode of the game. The beta of the game is set to be released for the Xbox One in December 2015 and for Windows and PlayStation 4 in 2016.
