The Division 2 will be an "alternative path" to the original

How long will The Division stay online after its sequel launches?

The very idea of a shared world shooter is that the core product is evolved and improved over time, but both the likes of Destiny and The Division both have and soon will receive sequels.

That has caused a stir within the player base of the original The Division for example, wondering whether their game will still be supported. According to the Managing Director of Ubisoft Massive, David Polfeldt, The Division 2 is more of an "alternative path". He says the following to GamesIndustry:

"It's been three years between The Division and Division 2. I think there's a lot of interest in trying a similar type of mechanic but in a new way. I'm pretty sure people are curious about the new one. Part of me thinks maybe The Division should remain live and The Division 2 is an alternative path for some people. I don't know what will happen, I think we need to remain very open-minded about that."

Interestingly, these quotes were followed up by another source from Massive who told the same site that the studio plans to support The Division "in the long-term."

How do you think developers should handle making sequels for these service-type projects?

REVIEW. Written by Eirik Hyldbakk Furu

"A couple of faults don't detract from the fact that The Division 2 is one of, if not the, best looter-shooters in years."
