Massive Entertainment wanted to make The Division as accessible as possible but PS3 and Xbox 360 couldn't handle it

It should prove to be a hit, even without the PS3 and Xbox 360's install base

Ubisoft's Massive Entertainment has been talking The Division and what they want to achieve with it.

It is currently the third next-gen only game that Ubisoft has in production alongside The Crew and Assassin's Creed: Unity and Massive's Fredrik Rundqvist believes that The Division is only possible on next-gen and PC hardware.

“We want the game to be as accessible as possible. What we wanted to do with the graphics and with the seamless open-world is not possible to do on last-gen," he explained. Massive Entertainment wanted to make The Division as accessible as possible but PS3 and Xbox 360 couldn't handle it

While this may limit the game's sales somewhat, they are confident with the rates at which the PS4 and Xbox One are selling that The Division will be a hit.

"If you look at the [sales] trends for PS4 and Xbox One, I think it looks really encouraging,” Rundqvist added. “It’s selling faster than last-gen, which is surprising to me. I don’t mind at all [that The Division] is coming out next year. There will be more people who can enjoy the game."

The Division isn't due out until 2015 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
