Ubisoft’s PvEvP action/RPG Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland has received an age rating in Taiwan, which hints at preparations for a soft launch in the next 2-3 months. The 15+ rating was registered back on November 14, 2023, but we noticed it only now.

Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland is a spinoff to the Tom Clancy’s The Division series, which takes place not in a big city, as in the previous games, but in the countryside. The game will feature survival and extraction shooter elements. The Division Heartland is to be distributed on a free-to-play basis and will be released on Windows PC, PlayStation 4/5 and Xbox One/Series X|S.

The game is being developed not by Swedish Massive Entertainment, like the previous The Division, but by American Red Storm Entertainment, created in 1996 by Tom Clancy himself. At one time, it was this company that launched the Rainbow Six (1998) and Ghost Recon (2001) series. Unfortunately, the latest shooter from Red Storm Entertainment is Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, which was released 11 years ago. The studio’s newest game is Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR for Meta Quest 2.

Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland was officially announced back in May 2021. According to the assumptions of those who found information about the rating, open beta testing of The Division Heartland should start in early 2024.

Considering that Massive Entertainment is currently releasing Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora (the game has already“gone gold”, releasing on December 7, 2023) and is working on Star Wars Outlaws (tentative 2024, most likely 2025), we won’t see Tom Clancy’s The Division 3 until 2026-2027, so The Division Heartland is our only The Division for the next few years.
