Upcoming The Division games like Heartland and potentially The Division 3 could be part of a platform-like model that Ubisoft already announced for the Assassin's Creed franchise.
Ubisoft recently announced Assassin's Creed Infinity , a platform for all upcoming Assassin's Creed games and they say the response to it was pretty big therefore they will be doing the same for their other popular franchises, starting with Rainbow Six and The Division .
So what does this exactly mean? What is this new platform that Ubisoft is talking about? Well, think of it as a hub where all the upcoming games like The Division Heartland and potentially The Division 3 are connected in some way. For example, when you start Infinity from your Steam or console, the platform would feature all the games from that franchise in one place.
The Call of Duty franchise uses similar models for Call of Duty Warzone and annual Call of Duty games. Once a new Call of Duty title releases, Warzone gets the new guns from that game, sometimes a new map and more.
Ubisoft recently announced that a bunch of Assassin's Creed games will be a part of Infinity and hopefully, we get some news on The Division franchise soon. It would certainly be great if Massive are working on the next big The Division game but so far, we only got the announcement of The Division Heartland, which is a free-to-play battle-royale hybrid title.
It may take a while before The Division 3 arrives, given that Massive Entertainment are busy working on the upcoming Avatar game and also have a Star Wars project in the works.
All in all, that's pretty much it when it comes to Ubisoft's plans for The Division Infinity. Hopefully, we'll hear more about the platform and what's next for the franchise in the coming months.
