Tom Clancy's The Division Mobile game is currently in its early stages of development

As part of the continuing multimedia extension of the Tom Clancy series, Ubisoft is taking The Division to handheld devices. As part of a broader update on the franchise, Ubisoft executive director Alain Corre revealed a mobile take on The Division but provided little information.

The Division Mobile will be released after Red Storm studio's The Division Heartland, which will be released for consoles and PC in 2021 or 2022, according to Ubisoft. The Division community's response has surpassed Ubisoft's expectations and set many company milestones, prompting the company to consider new directions for fans to experience the franchise.

Since its release in early 2019, Tom Clancy's The Division 2 has amassed over 40 million fans, making it one of Ubisoft's most successful games.

The web edition, though, seems to be a long way off, according to a timeline of upcoming items and content for The Division. The Red Storm and Massive teams at Ubisoft also have to produce The Division Heartland, a free-to-play game, and new content for The Division 2, respectively. The Division movie, which was previously revealed, is part of Ubisoft's larger plans.

Of note, Ubisoft is no stranger to computer gaming. Assassin's Creed, Rabbids, Just Dance, and Trials have all had smartphone spinoffs published by the publisher. Tom Clancy's Elite Squad, a crossover title featuring heroes from the Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon, The Division, Splinter Cell, and HAWX franchises, brought the Tom Clancy name to mobile.

At E3 2021, Ubisoft is expected to reveal more information about The Division (and its other Tom Clancy franchises). With a new version of Ubisoft Forward, the publisher's digital showcase, the company will participate in the show in June.
