A new rating suggests that Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland might be available for fans to enjoy sooner than expected, with an official rating board possibly hinting at its release date.
Ubisoft announced The Division Heartland two years ago, and since then no official news regarding the game has been revealed. Fans knew up front that the game would be a free-to-play multiplayer survival-action shooter developed by Red Storm Entertainment. But no details on its release date were known and the years of quiet made it easy to wonder which platforms it would come out on.
However, according to a new rating in Taiwan, the game might be playable very soon. Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland popped up on the country’s ratings board with a release date attached to it. This gives fans a better idea about when the game might come out, though some questions remain.
Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland release date details
Tom Clancy’s The Division: Heartland will likely come out in early 2024.
On November 14, the game was screened by the Taiwan Entertainment Software Rating Information board. Rating information being published in Taiwan has previously indicated that a game is set to be released in two months. This suggests that the game might either be launched in January 2024, or could start accepting players for an alpha or beta test. Ubisoft has not offered any information officially. and the Taiwan Entertainment Software Rating Information does not explicitly spell out the release date.
Information being published by this game rating board doesn’t guarantee a release, however. Silent Hill: The Short Message had its rating information published in December 2022 and didn’t even have a release date a year later.
With that being said, the rating information also discussed some of the content of the game. The Taiwan Entertainment Software Rating Information states that it has received a PG-15 rating for “violence, inappropriate language,” and “anti-society” factors, which tracks with what fans are expecting from the game. Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland also had its full list of platforms confirmed in the rating information.
Tom Clancy’s The Division: Heartland platforms list
Tom Clancy’s The Division: Heartland will be a free-to-play title available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Amazon Luna.
The game was revealed to be a free-to-play title that will feature survival elements in a PvPvE environment. The game will take place in an open world, though it’s unclear how it stacks up size-wise against other Ubisoft games like Assassin’s Creed Mirage or the upcoming Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. It is a stand-alone spin-off of The Division series which means players won’t need any prior knowledge of the previous games to play this title.
The game will also have cross-play and cross-progression, so players won’t have to worry about losing their progress or missing out on playing with their friends on different consoles.
