The Division and The Crew coming to PC and current-gen consoles - Report

No clarification from Ubisoft about these ports at this point in time.

by

While Ubisoft's shooter The Division and racing game The Crew are slated for the PS4 and Xbox One, there are rumors stating that the games will also appear on current-gen platforms.

Could these two potential Ubisoft heavyweights head for the Xbox 360 and PS3?

According to the source that broke news of The Crew a few weeks before its E3 2013 debut (via The Examiner), The Division and The Crew will be getting current generation ports for the Xbox 360 and PS3. Additionally, the source stated that Ubisoft may be working on a PC version of The Division. There is no word on whether the ports will be released alongside the PS4 and Xbox One versions.

A Ubisoft representative said the following: "we're listening to fans and haven't ruled out other platforms". For more information on The Division and The Crew, check out their respective links here and here.

IMO this game is really going to be something great.

One can only hope the current gen rumors are just that. Rumors.

We really don't need to lose another game to this cross gen trend.

Good news...i was ready to buy a PS4 because of  Division. Now it seems i'll get to play a shooter the way its best to play a shooter...without any aiming aids with a keyboard and mouse. Thank you Ubi!

I hope TURN 10 makes the same choice about their Forza racing game.I am sure they will only have gains and not loses,because there are thousands of x box 360's outhere that will not go the recycling bin,only because right way gamers might not have the money to buy the new ones.They should do this to SHOW THEIR APPRICIATION TO THE GAMERS WHO SUPPORTED THE FRANCHISE ALL THESE YEARS!

I will like to express my satisfaction IF IT IS REALLY T R U E that the CREW series and TOM CLANCY'S THE DIVISION games will run on current gen. consoles. It is a VERY fair move towards the gamers who cannot afford right way to buy the next gen. Consoles. This behavior will be appriciated and make gamers happy AND FEEL obligated to buy the new machines the soonest.

Soon as I saw it was only for the consoles at E3 I was so disappointed, Ubisoft you need to make this happen for the glorious PC!

This way I can say naff off to AC4 and buy Watch_Dogs and this.

The Division,if only gets designed for PS4 & XONE,then it'll be truly a shame for the developers that they failed to put the perfect thing into the perfect place...

Not releasing this for the PC would be right-out silly.  I mean, I love what I've seen so far from "The Division" but I won't go as far as buying a console to play the game...

This is one of those games that i cant see any reason not to put out on the PC, i mean the whole experience is online, so preventing PC piracy should be a simple issue. The market is clearly ready for it (assuming it lives up to what they've shown us thus far).

Ubi keeps suprising, and delivering AAA titles, dont stop now :)

I'd be supprised it would ever come to PS3/X360. The game have super graphics. But it's totally possible they do a PC version. The devs already talked about it, even if they said it's not for now at least, as they only work on PS4/Xone till the game is released.

Dude, The Division looks so freaking amazing. I am REALLY hoping it comes to PC.

It's a game that looks like it was made for PC. Mouse+Keyboard ftw.

I would rather get this for next gen consoles or PC. No telling how many potential issues the current gen versions could have.

Did I miss where they confirmed The Division for PC? Those videos are old news. Really wish I could remove my visit to this article from the hit counter. So tired of IGN and GS constantly renaming new articles using old, unchanged news.

They'd have to be stupid not to release for the PC, would be a huge slap in the face and PC gamers would hate Ubisoft as much as they do EA.

@CnConrad Who are you to say that? They should have never even released these new consoles yet, but you should already know that.

@Tripwolf  The division is definitely that killer game for me.

 Ubisoft please never stop giving us awesome surprises in with the games we already know about. Oh and show us a lot more of the division soon, i need to see what i can do in it.

@Tripwolf  It will come, they already say it. They wont rule out that option, since all of us has murder the forums asking about a PC version.

@Oozyrat Since most people download the games without paying for them on PC, it's hard for them to push a PC version. They prefer consoles, less hacking.

@sniperwol_basic I'm in software engineering too and I play on consoles, what's your point about being in software? Even if most of my friends in the domain play on PC... Can't say why, I really hate PC gaming, lol­.

@senjutsu @Oozyrat true, but all they need to do is to close pirate  bay, and a game like the divison definetly worths the money...so is watch dogs and other awesome titels

@GaMa__GaMer @abhisheknerdy20 I've noticed some slight drops in the frame rates in the gameplay vids.So there is a strong possibility that consoles won't exactly improve over the PC in terms of performance.Still not a reason to hate a console.

@SinisterLemos @Trisomy Well since it's an MMO , there would be less attempts to pirate the game, it's kind of like WoW, do you see it being pirated?Nope.

Because there's an obvious market for it, petitions over 100,000 people demanding it, the fact that it's not an exclusive for either new console, so therefore it should be available on all platforms capable of running it.
