The Division Passes 20 Million Players Across PS4, Xbox One, And PC

That's quite the milestone.


Ubisoft's multiplayer Destiny-like shooter The Division has been out for just about two years, and today the company announced that the game has passed a significant milestone: it has just crossed the 20 million player mark across PS4, Xbox One, and PC. [Update: Given the first game's strength, it's probably no surprise that The Division 2 has been announced.]

Although this number probably includes the people who took advantage of the free trials Ubisoft's offered, it's still an impressive number. The Division has amassed a player base the size of the state of New York, and to celebrate, Ubisoft is beginning a series of events. During March, there will be four Global Events--one per week--and each will bring its own special modifiers and rewards. In addition, you can snag a free sneeze emote right now.

As a part of its announcement for crossing the 20 million milestone, Ubisoft also revealed some other notable statistics for the game. Among other things, 66 billion NPCs have been killed, and players average 3 hours of playtime a day. You can see the full stat sheet above.

Ubisoft has routinely released new content for The Division, including three big expansions called Underground, Survival, and Last Stand. The latest big content drop came in December, when a new area and two game modes were added. You can read more about The Division's 1.8 update here.
