Four studios now developing shooter

Ubisoft Annecy working on The Division

Ubisoft Annecy is the latest studio to collaborate on the publisher’s upcoming open-world shooter Tom Clancy’s The Division.

The developer has previously worked on the multiplayer for Assassin’s Creed III and Black Flag. It now joins Massive Entertainment, Reflections and Red Storm in making The Division. Annecy’s exact role on the project was not specified.

The Division, built on Ubisoft’s new Snowdrop engine, is expected to be released later this year.

“The team in Annecy is delighted to be collaborating with Massive, Red Storm and Reflections on Tom Clancy’s The Division,” said Ubisoft Annecy studio manager Rebecka Coutaz.

“We are bringing our previous experience in multiplayer online games and this project is allowing us to build our technical knowledge in other areas and become experts on this incredible brand. The collaboration with the other studios is going very smoothly, and we’re working together to ensure we meet and exceed the high expectations players have for this new title.”
