F2P Shooter The Division Heartland Cancelled By Ubisoft

Tom Clancy’s The Division: Heartland has been cancelled by publisher Ubisoft, a report from IGN confirms. The cancellation comes as Ubisoft will look to focus on what it considers to be “bigger opportunities,” namely XDefiant and Rainbow Six Siege.

Heartland was first announced all the way back in 2021, to be made by Red Storm Entertainment and intended to be its own, standalone experience. Three years later, development on the game has been halted, for no deeper reason it seems than Ubisoft doesn’t think it has the legs to be worth getting across the finish line.

While XDefiant is still very much an unknown quantity in how well that game will do, with its launch less than a week away at time of writing, it’s clear where Ubisoft is placing its bets.

“After careful consideration, we have made the tough call to halt development on Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland, effective immediately. Our priority now is to support the talented team members at our Red Storm Entertainment studio, who will be transitioning to new projects within our company, including XDefiant and Rainbow Six.”

With Heartland no longer on the table, fans of The Division will just have to keep playing 2019’s The Division 2 until the third installment currently in the works arrives. Though, it doesn’t feel like that’s close to being ready, since it was only last September that Ubisoft confirmed it is being worked on.
