Ubisoft's online shooter "The Division" seems to be soaring high once more after the game's latest patch release. According to the publisher, numerous daily active players came back to what the game had when it was launch adding that the recent patch release was a triumph in having players return to the game.

"Since the release of patch 1.4, we went back to the daily active users we had at launch, because people were [so impressed]," Ubisoft VP of live operations Anne Blondel said in a statement to PCGamesN. Players returned because Ubisoft had committed to improve "The Division" although it would mean that its expansions will be delayed as well as the revenue related to the game.

Blondel also added that they didn't expect that some players would leave earlier, which prompted them to make the tough decision. So they had to stop everything and fix what needed to be fixed and then start offering more content. "And this is what we did [and] the community was super happy about it, even though they were disappointed at first that we were to push back the next DLC releases," she said.

According to GameSpot, launching the public test server of "The Division" is one of Ubisoft's attempts to improve the game. The test server enables fans to test new features before these are released publicly.

Alongside the major patch 1.5 that came out this month is "Survival", which was the game's most recent paid expansion for PC and Xbox One and it will hit PS4 in December. The final add-on of "The Division" is "Last Stand", which will come out in 2017.

Set in a near future New York City, Tom Clancy's "The Division" was developed by Ubisoft Massive and published by Ubisoft. It is an online-only open world third-person shooter video game for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game was released worldwide on March 8, 2016.
