The Division 2 story trailer

Ubisoft would like to remind everyone that The Division 2 is just a game, and no part of its story is political in any way.

The Division 2 launches for PS4, Xbox One, and PC – via the Epic Store and not Steam – on March 15th, 2019.

A private beta – guaranteed for those who pre-order the game – will run between the 7th and 10th of February. If you haven’t pre-ordered you can add your name the list, but access isn’t guaranteed.
