Vivendi Looms as Ubisoft Struggles to Fix Tom Clancy's ‘The Division’ Game
It may not be all about Tom Clancy's "The Division" game because lately, news reveal that Ubisoft is not keen on the idea of Vivendi takeover. It's not about faulting the game developer about the slow progress of the game; it's about the overall interest of Ubisoft and all its future projects.
Since 2015, the mass media group has slowly taken its ownership to a higher level after it increased its stakes on Ubisoft. Nonetheless, the latter remained silent about being interested on getting sold under the fusion. In an interview with "The Division" developer's Anne Blondel, she said "The thought I have is that I have been [here], with Ubisoft, for 20 years, and I know what made us so successful for 30 years, is being super independent, being very autonomous."
Apparently, the company doesn't think that, giving Vivendi more options over them; and for now to make adjustments on "The Division," will not do any good for the company. While she acknowledges the great risk of their sales strategies, she als mentioned the different times their games were a success and brought enough revenue to the company.
Ubisoft is confident, their different approach to their games, despite "The Division's" current state is what made them keep it together and have their fans coming back for the next project. Mentioning how Ubisoft will not be the same if ever there's a Vivendi takeover, Blondel said "So far so good, I would say, because gamers are still [with us] and I know for a fact, having been there for 20 years, that if you [separate] us from our independence."
Ubisoft has since changed its approach in handling Tom Clancy's "The Division" game; paying more attention to players comments rather than their personal input. For more news and update about "The Division," Ubisoft and Vivendi, make sure to check us here on GamenGuide.
