Ubisoft has officially canceled the highly anticipated Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland, which was announced three years ago. The game was a free-to-play PvE and PvP action/survival shooter set in a small town in the United States. While the game is expected to be released in 2021 or 2022, no developments have been reported for a long time.

The cancellation was finally announced with Ubisoft’s earnings report for the first quarter of the year. This decision was taken to cut costs and redirect company resources to‘bigger opportunities‘. These new deals include other Tom Clancy games in the Rainbow Six series and the upcoming live-service FPS game XDefiant.

Ubisoft’s Financial Strategies and New Projects

Ubisoft has recently been pursuing various strategies to control costs. In the last 18 months, the company has laid off more than 1,700 employees. The company has also made significant changes to its strategy, now focusing on two main projects: Star Wars Outlaws, the first open-world Star Wars game, and Assassin’s Creed Shadows, a new Assassin’s Creed game set in Japan. The first trailer for the new Assassin’s Creed game has just been released. New games are also expected from other popular franchises such as Far Cry and Ghost Recon. But for projects like The Division Heartland, which the company doesn’t see as a big opportunity, the future is now uncertain.
