Ubisoft has announced Tom Clancy’s The Division Resurgence, a new installment of the action role-playing franchise that’s designed exclusively for mobile platforms. Currently in development for iOS and Android, The Division Resurgence is a free-to-play third-person shooter that will add a new and canonical storyline to The Division universe, one that aims to provide “a new perspective” on key story events from Massive Entertainment’s mainline Division titles, The Division and The Division 2. Ubisoft hasn’t shared a release date for The Division Resurgence yet but has opened sign-ups for a closed alpha that is “just around the corner,” allowing participants to get an early taste of the game. The Division Resurgence is developed by “a core lead team at Ubisoft, in collaboration with other studios & partners around the world.” Massive Entertainment, which apparently isn’t involved with the new game, is currently working on an untitled Star Wars title.
The Division Resurgence will be playable solo or in co-op as players take to the crisis-ravaged streets of NYC. With controls and a user interface tailored for mobile platforms, players will step into new class roles and face off against challenging enemy factions in a block-by-block battle to protect civilians and build a better future. Customize your loadout on the fly as you equip new specializations with unique signature weapons and gadgets, and expand your arsenal by gathering or crafting loot, then modding and upgrading your gear.
