The Division 2 system requirements

Ubisoft has been sitting on The Division 2 system requirements, seemingly until today’s AMD Radeon VII announcement.

The Division 2, Ubisoft’s follow-up to the post-apocalyptic militia simulator of the same name (minus the ‘2’), launches in a couple of months. March 15th, 2019, to be precise.

We might have expected to hear what The Division 2 system requirements will be before now, but something has been holding Ubisoft back.

Now we think we know what that was: the announcement of the AMD Radeon VII graphics card.

The Radeon VII is AMD’s first 7nm GPU and, combined with a whopping 16GB of HBM2 memory at 1TB/s memory bandwidth, it’s looking like a bit of a beast. Taking on the Nvidia RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti kind of beast. It was announced today at the CES 2019 show in Las Vegas.

And now that the Radeon VII is announced, Ubisoft can take the wraps off The Division 2 system requirements (spoiler alert: it features the new AMD card at the top-end).

Have we mentioned before that we really like it when developers and publishers include their target resolutions and frame rates, particularly on the higher-end system requirements? It really gives players an idea of where that money spent on a monster graphics card will help.

This wasn’t the only reveal for The Division 2, however. Ubisoft also quietly dropped into the system requirements press release that The Division 2 won’t be launching on Steam, but will be available on the Epic Store.
