For Massive Entertainment’s The Division 2, the game is already a third of the year through and the only content that debuted for the title was the minimal added base of Tidal Basin followed by Operation Dark Hours that held as the game’s first raid. And now with the patient wait for the first episode of expedition adventures outside of District Columbia on the brink of releasing, it looks that more possibilities surrounding the Tom Clancy series could be upon us.
Pitched in a recent tweet from TT Games Level Director Tim Spencer, he shares his excitement for a hypothetical story that a Division agent could follow as he accepts his mission from the SHD to New York City whilst his family falls victim to the fall that takes place at the same time in Washington D.C. Spencer explaining that the concept of the series could open a whole new spectrum to the series with a more personal spin of the world created: “None of the stories have explored a Division agent sacrifices, and what they go through mentally. When you think about it: it’s a pretty dark/epic thing – there’s huge opportunity to tell some incredible stories there.”
Apparently not something people are violently against 🙂

Amid the enthusiasm that Spencer shared within his own thread on the different paths The Division universe can be taken as for a single player story, Creative Director for the series Julian Gerighty did acknowledge the tweet and asked his followers on the concept.
Shortly after his tweet, fans began flooding their opinions into the thread encouraging the idea of a spin-off title following a more firsthand experience in the game’s universe as he responded that it is “Apparently not something people are violently against.” Gerighty despite the positive reception of the pithed idea did not leave his opinion on the topic except for a smiley face following his comment on the fans’ thoughts.
Ultimately, there still is no confirmation that either Ubisoft or Massive Entertainment will be working on a story-focused title following the discussion on Twitter. Though we know that the Creative Director seems to fancy the idea, there is plenty for the team to be focusing already with planned content already scheduled to release for the first year of the game’s release.
