The Division development barely started says source close to Ubisoft
Ubisoft has confidently pronounced that their ambitious new Tom Clancy property The Division will launch this year but it seems that they may be jumping the gun a little bit.
An anonymous source close to the game's development over at Massive Entertainment has stated that, while the new Snowdrop Engine works well it's not finished and development on the game has barely begun raising questions over whether the game will make release later this year.
"The game engine works well,” the source stated, “it's not done but works well. The actual game development has barely started, however. The fact that Ubisoft has gone public with a 2014 release date feels laughable to be perfectly honest, we will never be able to release The Division this year. It's a large project, and we have very far to go."
After the initial gameplay demo shown off at this year's E3 Ubisoft has kept their cards close to their chest releasing only a tech demo trailer of the new Snowdrop Engine during Spike's VGX awards show since then.
