Released in March 2016, Tom Clancy’s The Division is an online-focused shooter where players battle against opposing factions across New York City, which has been ravaged by a smallpox outbreak over the Christmas holidays. The game was met with huge success, generating $300 million worldwide upon release and recording the biggest first-week launch for a new gaming franchise.
In addition to the success of the game, Ubisoft has confirmed that a film adaptation of The Division is currently in the pipeline, with Jake Gyllenhaal set to feature in a starring role. As of January 2017, the film has a director attached in the shape of Stephen Gaghan.
