Default Tom Clancy's The Division (Confirmed for PC)

The Division Youtube Gameplay

Edit: Apparently they listened to the 100k+ people who signed the petition, and are now making this for PC also. (Thank you for those who signed this post) Tom Clancy's The Division is coming to PC | News | PC Gamer

Seen this demo'd at E3, and can honestly say I haven't looked forward to playing a game this much in a long time, especially with a bunch of friends. At the bottom I linked the petition, something I can honestly say I have never thought would work, but I'm willing to try, and would appreciate it if others would sign too if you're interested.

The "online open-world action-RPG" enjoyed a very good showing at the Ubisoft press conference on Monday. It's a third person shooter set in a crumbling plague-infested New York city. Squad-based combat against NPCs morphed into a PvP battle towards the end of the video, which raises questions about the size of that online world. Latency still hamstrings precise shooting mechanics on servers above a certain scale. I wonder if games like The Division and Bungie's Destiny will be divided into more manageable 50-100 player servers, a la Day Z.

Tom Clancy's The Division developers Massive are keeping their options open for future expansion beyond the announced Xbone and PS4 versions. They're currently "optimizing the experience for next gen consoles" they say on Twitter, but they're "not ruling out any platforms for the future."

Well, if the trailer is anything to go by (obviously the script was practiced for a more cinematic feel) that game looks freakin' sick.

Uhm, isn't this a bit unnecessary, havent they already said that once they finish the console variants they will then work on a PC one. I dont feel the need for a petition at this point.

Quote where you read this, cuz I have not heard that once from anyone. So I don't think its unnecessary at all.

They have their commitments to the console currently but thats as close as they can possibly come to outright saying its coming to the PC. Its coming, sometimes patience is a virtue. Wait and it will come. This is a knee jerk reaction that is unnecessary.

They basucally own the Clancy name so this actually really has nothing to do with him, they just stuck his name on it. From what I understand.

Yup. Definitely intrigued. I just hope they don't riddle it with DLC's.
