Stick a fork in TD1; after two more free updates, it's done. E3 '18 will have a bunch of new info. Will be interesting to see if they continue with the plot from the first or if they start fresh with a new scenario.

I hope they continue the story from the first — that asshole is still out there somewhere.

What he means is that the old game does not produce revenue so they have no funding for those "stories and experiences". The only way to get the funding is by selling a new game.

Same here.  As long as they keep the servers open a few more years for the people that want to keep playing, then having a sequel shouldn't be a problem.  They just closed down the Demon's Souls servers recently (you can still play offline) and that was released in 2009.

I don't see where the story could have gone next, so I guess a total replacement saves them from answering that.

Plenty of places to go.

Keener is on the loose. His shit plan to use the virus maker tools notwithstanding, he's still in possession of something that someone smarter and more capable could do worse with.

The president is dead, possibly due to a coup attempt and the hunters that show up in Survival and Underground are probably Division as well, sent in to clean the mess started by the First Wave agents that went rogue.

To quote one of the vendors, "There's stuff".

Yes, the virus could be a wasteland creator... other cities could be reduced to warzones using it as an excuse. But at the end of the day that just means creating a new set of extremely expensive detailed city maps and more "bad men" with bullet sponge behaviour (got to support the RPG progression) to shoot with the same weapons (since time cannot have moved too much). I just don't see the openings for positive impacts on the gameplay.

On that, we sort of agree. But I never wanted much of a change in gameplay, just more story.

Could use some more varied loot and better drop rates as well. I really like Survival- hope that stays around and gets updated.

I'm kinda betting money they'll probably make a city or world more open/vertically interesting, like Ghost Recon Wildlands or something like that.

Survival is the thing that kept me playing. It was like Day Z in a snowstorm.

Would like to see more in the character development area. I don't think we need classes per se, but having more options for skills/augments would be nice.

Teaser trailer is up along with a gameplay trailer from E3.

The action has moved to DC, six months later and gone full-on Deep State.

Looks like they've just polished the systems of the first game up. If they understand that the game needs to shit decent loot all over you like how they made The Division 1 after like 4-5 months when everyone started quitting, it'll be fun.

There has got to be something wrong with a society that believes a biological attack will automatically lead to societal collapse, urban survivalism (rooftop farms? what?) and armed civil war rather than people trying to work together to rebuild. Or that a small group of armed individuals will be the secret to resolving the situation. It's like a conspiracy theory mash-up.

And if you are going to have the collapse of society and civil war then what narrative value did the virus have, it would be more impactful if society went to hell entirely without it. Maybe some new drug that made people prone to violence and capable of taking 300 rounds to the beany to be put down so at least there was some foundation for the gameplay.

Gameplay looks much the same.. nice maps, boring gunplay and that annoying fake team-work banter. It will be somewhat interesting to see if they have solved the issue with content being exhausted much faster than they can make it, and progression being interesting.

The alternative "real" real-world comms would not have been safe for television, and you all know this  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

I'm excited for this, but at the same time it's hard to think about game beyond 2018 at this point as my WoW itch is getting scratched with a new expansion in two months.

But I'm sure I'll be needing something new around the time this comes out next year.

True enough, but I don't like the attempts at mixing the RP and RL language.

Looks like the Division, D.C. - which we discussed when the first one came out. After the other big shooter game sequels took a dive, I'll sit this one out.

It's a Tom Clancy story so there's like a pile of factions literally just waiting around for the apocalypse in this world.

God willing they learned their lesson from their experiences with the first game and make it basically rain loot. They've changed how sets and bonuses work a bit looks like.

Now to find out if the team developing this one is the same team that did the live patches or not.  I'm banking on not since studios never seem to learn this lesson.

From what I hear, it is that team.

Additionally, to keep people playing the original, they’re giving out rewards for competing objectives in the current game that can be redeemed in Division 2. Probably mostly cosmetic shit, but I’m down.
