Ubisoft Cancels The Division Heartland

Per IGN, Ubisoft has cancelled The Division Heartland to focus its resources on “bigger opportunities.”

The news came from Ubisoft’s latest earnings report, which said it plans to focus resources on games like xDefiant and Rainbow Six. In recent months, Ubisoft has undergone restructuring with sales of its latest launches, including Assassin’s Creed Nexus, underperforming.

The Divison Heartland was revealed in 2021 alongside a mobile version of the hit Tom Clancy series and a movie adaptation. It was led by Red Storm Entertainment and was supposedly set to launch in 2022.  Since then, not much information has been made available from Ubisoft. Ultimately, Heartland had several testing phases available, with players free to sign up to test the game, and it was even delayed internally before being cancelled.

On today’s investor call, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said the company plans to focus on open-world games and expand live-service title offerings. This year, Ubisoft has some major games set to launch, including Star Wars Outlaws, xDefiant, Assassin’s Creed Shadows, and more, in the pipeline.
