Ubisoft Delays The Division: Heartland — Soonest Release Date In April Of 2022

As part of Ubisoft­’s lat­est earn­ings report, the com­pa­ny con­firmed The Divi­sion: Heart­land has already suf­fered a delay.

Heart­land was pre­vi­ous­ly set to release dur­ing Ubisoft­’s fis­cal 2021–22, but it appears this has been pushed to fis­cal 2022–23. This means the ear­li­est release date would be April 2022, while the lat­est would be March 2023. Dur­ing the earn­ings call, man­age­ment said there should be con­cern of Heart­land’s devel­op­ment, as plans are under­way for the game’s next test.

Ubisoft did acknowl­edge that they plan to strug­gle in the free-to-play mar­ket before find­ing their foot­ing. “Suc­cess may first imply fail­ures, to grow and learn as the group con­stant­ly builds new skills, tech­nolo­gies, and capa­bil­i­ties. While there is more work ahead, Ubisoft is con­fi­dent these organ­ic invest­ments will ulti­mate­ly pay off and sig­nif­i­cant­ly enhance the scale and val­ue of its biggest fran­chis­es,” Ubisoft said.

Man­age­ment also dis­cussed Ghost Recon: Front­line. Despite the crit­i­cal response to the game’s announce­ment, the devel­op­ers are stick­ing with the game and believes it will do well.

Heart­land is a free-to-play game set in The Divi­sion uni­verse and is being devel­oped by Red Storm. It’s a stand­alone title, and Ubisoft says you don’t need to know any­thing about the series to enjoy the expe­ri­ence. It will fea­ture an “all-new per­spec­tive” on The Divi­sion fran­chise, and takes place “in a new setting.”

In oth­er news, Ubisoft­’s earn­ings report also includ­ed a big take­away on Assas­s­in’s Creed Val­hal­la, which now the com­pa­ny’s sec­ond biggest prof­it-gen­er­at­ing game.
