"It has come to our attention that a comment from one of our team members has been perceived by some members of the community to imply the PC version of The Division was 'held back' and this is simply not true," an Ubisoft representative said in a statement to GameSpot today.
"From the beginning, the PC version of The Division was developed from the ground up, and we're confident players will enjoy the game and the features this version has to offer," the rep added. "And the feedback from PC players who participated in the recent closed beta supports this."
The unnamed developer who originally made the "in check" comment also said "it would be kind of unfair to push [the PC version] so far away from [the console versions]." He added that he was happy that Ubisoft committed to making a dedicated PC version of the game from the start. The end result is that PC players will get a solid experience, complete with more graphics customization options than console.
"I'm really happy that we're pushing the PC build as much as we are; there's a lot more customized options than the console," he added.
The console versions of The Division will offer some PC-like graphical settings. Xbox One and PS4 players can even make use of these settings to improve the frame rate if they want.
After multiple delays, The Division's full release is now scheduled for March 8.
