Ubisoft has announced The Division: Heartland, a free-to-play game set in the Tom Clancy Division universe.

Developed by the original Tom Clancy studio, Red Storm Entertainment, The Division: Heartland will be standalone from the main The Division series. It’s planned for release on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC in the 2021-2022 window.

No details have been offered beside those, so it’s currently very unclear as to what kind of game The Division: Heartland will be, beyond its free-to-play nature. Ubisoft does say that it will be an “all new perspective on the universe in a new setting”, though. Those interested can sign up to get involved in early hands-on opportunities.

It is, however, just one component of a “transmedia” expansion of The Division, across games, movies, and novels. The previously announced The Division Netflix movie, starring Jessica Chastain and Jake Gyllenhaal, will be joined by a new original novel set after the events of The Division 2.

New content is also coming to The Division 2 later this year. The DLC will add a new game mode and “new methods” of levelling up agents, said to emphasise build variety and viability.

Finally, a mobile game set in The Division universe is also in development.
