A few days before, Massive Entertainment along with the announcement of Julian Greighty’s appointment as the executive producer of The Division Series, confirmed The Division 3.
In the social media tweet, it was announced that Julian Greighty will look after The Division Series 3 along with his other ongoing projects and that Massive Entertainment will be leading development as it has done with the previous two parts.

However, the unusual thing about this was Massive Entertainment announced the highly anticipated game’s third part with just a press release and a Tweet.
Along with Tom Clancy’s The Division, Greighty was directing the Massive Star Wars Outlaws Game. However, the announcement didn’t clarify whether Greighty was leaving Star Wars to focus on Division 3 or had already completed the game series.
In the press release, Ubisoft mentioned, “Julian remains fully committed to making Star Wars Outlaws a success both for the development team and fans,” He will remain on the project through launch to ensure the game meets the intended creative vision and provides a great experience for players
In a statement, Greighty mentioned his passion for The Division 3 and said, There are only a few games that I can genuinely say blew me away the first time I saw them, and Tom Clancy’s The Division is one of them. I was immediately hooked, like so many others who are part of our devoted player community.
“It’s a privilege and an honour to be able to continue to build incredible and unforgettable experiences in this amazing world with the most talented teams around the world, and I can’t wait for what’s next.”
The Original Division was poised to break all records for Ubisoft, selling the highest number of copies in gaming history. Meanwhile, both Division One and Two were announced with interesting campaigns. However, this was not the case for Division 3, which was announced in just a press release.
