May 15, 2024 by No Comments

Ubisoft has announced the cancellation of Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland. The decision comes three years after the free-to-play shooter was first announced.

“After careful consideration, we’ve made the tough call to cease development on Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland, effective immediately,” the company said in a statement to Insider Gaming. “Our priority now is to support the talented team members at our Red Storm Entertainment studio as they transition to new projects within our company, including Xdefiant and Rainbow Six.”

News of the game’s cancellation was communicated to staff in an email Wednesday morning Ubisoft earnings call. In the earnings report, Ubisoft said the decision was made as part of the company’s “increased investment options.”

Insider Gaming understands that the game’s design has changed significantly since its announcement, and we’ll share more details about the game at a later date.

Throughout its development, the game has seen multiple betas with players and has also been rated by the Taiwanese Ratings Board. According to Tom Henderson of Insider GamingPlaytests and betas “didn’t resonate with players”.

As mentioned in the announcement above, the game is being developed by Red Storm Entertainment, the studio behind the original Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon games.

The news of the game’s cancellation also comes on the same day that the latest installment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, Assassin’s Creed Shadows, was officially revealed.
