Ubisoft has quietly revealed that it is working on Tom Clancy’s The Division 3, a third mainline installment of the MMO shooter that previously took Agents to a virus-ridden New York City and Washington, D.C. Ubisoft shared the news today in a new article that explains how Julian Gerighty, the Creative Director behind The Division, The Division 2, and Star Wars Outlaws, will be back to oversee the third game as the franchise’s new Executive Producer. There doesn’t seem to be any word yet on what happened to The Division movie, which was supposed to star Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain.
“We may have over 40 million players, but The Division is still in its early years as a franchise,” Gerighty said. “There are so many incredible stories to tell, places to explore and people to protect. “
“I think that we delivered that with Tom Clancy’s The Division’s cutting-edge visuals, incredible gameplay, and promise to the player that they can’t get this experience anywhere else, and then again with Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. It’s about refinement, it’s about pushing the quality bar consistently forward.”
After joining the team at Massive Entertainment – A Ubisoft Studio and shipping the original in 2016, he moved to Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 as Creative Director, where he and his team crafted a new adventure in the summertime streets of Washington, D.C. Now, he’s setting his sights on Tom Clancy’s The Division 3, as well as the plethora of other projects set in The Division universe, including the mobile game Tom Clancy’s The Division Resurgence, and the survival-action shooter Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland.
A core focus of Gerighty’s is to build a team for Tom Clancy’s The Division 3, which will be led by Massive Entertainment, while making sure Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 remains well supported. Outside of that, his attention will be on a solidification of brand identity.
