While Ubisoft has mentioned we might see extra of the lately introduced The Division 2 at E3 2018, it seems that the shared world shooter could have a battle royal mode akin to present business darling Fortnite. The sport is being developed by Massive Entertainment, makers of the earlier entry within the sequence. Details are sparse in the meanwhile, however with the studio engaged on The Division 2, supporting The Division, and likewise creating a sport primarily based on James Cameron’s Avatar 2, it is fairly potential that The Division 2 often is the first title to capitalise on the battle royale hype.
According to a report from Gamereactor citing sources inside the studio, it is the results of Massive being requested by Ubisoft to “start looking into the battle royale game type in January of this year” and the studio reported it may “cook up something fun in a pretty short amount of time especially considering The Division itself contains almost all of the ingredients needed to make this kind of shooter.”
And whereas Ubisoft is mum on all issues associated to The Division 2 till E3, Massive is not the one studio engaged on the sport. It shall be supported by a host of Ubisoft studios. Namely Ubisoft Annecy, Redstorm, Reflections, Ubisoft Bucharest and Ubisoft Shanghai. The sport will use an up to date model of the Snowdrop engine that powered the primary sport.
It makes fiscal sense for Ubisoft to place its personal spin on the battle royale style. Though with revenues for PUBG declining and Fortnite seemingly being the one sport within the style in ascendance, that hasn’t stopped others reminiscent of ARK: Survival Evolved from mimicking the system. If there’s any huge funds, AAA sport writer that may put a distinctive spin on the battle royale style that is not Rockstar (rumoured to have one thing comparable in Red Dead Redemption 2) it is undoubtedly Ubisoft. Safe to say, E3 2018 could have greater than its fair proportion of surprises.
