The Division Heartland: check the page on Ubisoft Store, is the game coming?

The Division Heartland

The Division Heartland could be close, considering that the official game page flew up on the Ubisoft Store, only to be promptly removed once the publisher realized what was obviously a mistake.

This oversight however, it may hide the fact that the game is almost ready to be released, given that it has been in the works for quite some time now. Officially announced last year, following a long series of rumors about it, the game should be a spin-off on the Tom Clancy's The Division series, characterized by a slightly different setting from the main chapters.

It would be an action shooter with survival elements distributed as free-to-play, always focused on cooperative and competitive action based on the information that emerged previously on modes, maps and various details. Recently, we have also returned to talk about it with regard to cross-play, but it may be shortly before we can see it in definitive form.

Considering that there is a Ubisoft Forward scheduled for September 2022, it is highly likely, at this point, that the game will be present within the presentation event of the French publisher, with more information and perhaps a release date. The appearance of an official page, although it means not very precise, could at least confirm a not very distant release for The Division Heartland, pending further confirmation.

The Division: Heartland first details emerge from a hastily erased Ubisoft Store page

Sounds like we might find out more at Ubisoft Forward on Saturday

A store page for The Division's upcoming free-to-play looter-shooter spin-off The Division: Heartland went up on the Ubisoft Store yesterday, revealing new details about the game's setting and multiplayer modes. The store page has since been taken down, but not before it was spotted by a few eagle-eyed Twitterers. Seeing as the next Ubisoft Forward showcase is scheduled for this coming Saturday, it’s entirely possible that we’ll be seeing some concrete deets about Heartland then.

Liam had a fun time with Ubisoft's free-to-play skateathon Roller Champions.

“Tom Clancy’s The Division: Heartland is a free-to-play survival-action multiplayer shooter set in small-town Middle America,” the store page read, which you can see for yourself in a video tweeted by user Unknown1Z1. It also details a 45-player PvEvP mode that’s called Storm Operations, where you'll be battling a faction called the Vultures with a deadly viral outbreak as the backdrop. There’ll also be PvE Excursion Operations to scrounge gear and “prep the battlefield”. You’ll get to pick between six agents and three classes, which all have their own perks and skills.

It’s been yonks since we last heard about The Division: Heartland. It was first announced in May 2021, but we’ve seen next to nothing about the game until now. The only other thing we really know about it is that it’s being made by Red Storm Entertainment, rather than The Division and The Division 2’s Massive Entertainment. Weirdly though, the game’s developer was listed as Ubisoft Montréal on the now-disappeared Ubisoft Store page, so it's possible the game's since changed hands since it was first announced.

Before the Ubisoft Store page was taken down, it listed The Division: Heartland as 'coming soon'. Heartland was supposed to be released before the end of 2022. We’ve still got a few months, so that could happen. Let’s see what Ubisoft Forward brings.
