Ubisoft has had a surprise announcement of The Division 2 leaked after its press release popped up online, seemingly earlier than planned.


The announcement is fairly low-key - it's a pledge to keep The Division 1 updated for the foreseeable future (more on that in a moment) but that the team at Massive Entertainment is now working on a sequel.

The Division 2 will again run on the studio's own Snowdrop Engine, albeit an updated version.

Development will be assisted by (deep breath) Ubisoft Annecy, Redstorm, Reflections, Ubisoft Bucharest and Ubisoft Shanghai.

There are no screenshots or gameplay or even a teaser video for The Division 2. You'll just have to wait - more on the game will be unveiled at E3 2018 in June, Ubisoft has said.

The Division 1, meanwhile, will continue to receive updates for the immediate future - including an Xbox One X update to polish the game's visuals.

In June, The Division will be able to unlock in-game achievement Crests which then unlock rewards in The Division 2 when the sequel launches - whenever that is.
