During a presentation at a recent preview event (via Xbox Achievements), The Division 2 creative director Julian Gerighty said that more people finished The Division's campaign than 'any other Ubisoft story-based game.'
'The original campaign lasted around 40-hours, which is a considerable amount of time,' Gerighty said, before adding that 'more people finished The Division 1 than any other Ubisoft story-based game.' He didn't elaborate further, but I guess this means that more players saw the credits roll on the shooter-RPG than any Far Cry, Assassin's Creed, Splinter Cell, or Rayman, but to name a few.
Gerighty stated that 'The Division 2 will have a compelling campaign about saving D.C., and saving the soul of America,' which is an equally lofty claim, but one we can't confirm until we get our hands on it, later this year.
It seems mad when you look at the quality of Ubisoft's catalogue of story-driven games, but then it did become the publisher's fastest selling game at launch, spent a super long time at the top of the charts, and had over 20 million registered players after two years.
The Division 2 will be available on PS4 and Xbox One from March 8. You can get it on PC from then, too, but not on Steam -- you'll have to play it through either Uplay or the Epic Games Store.
