Next-gen title The Division will be coming to PC, Ubisoft announced today in a blog post.
The decision has apparently come about as a result of “thousands of comments on Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere”, all requesting a PC version of the game. A petition requesting a PC version of the game also began to circulate, garnering more than 140, 000 signatures
The Division was first announced for both Xbox One and PS4 at E3 earlier this year. Following this, there was speculation that a PC game was in the works, with Ubisoft previously announcing that it had not ruled out other platforms.
The company also commented that it was aware of fan feedback on the internet.
As part of the PC announcement Executive Producer Fredrik Rundqvist stated that it had been “important…for us to feel your support, interest and commitment to the game. Your opinions matter to us. The positive energy you bring back to the team will help us create the best game possible. One of the most frequently discussed topics has been that of releasing The Division on PC”
The Division is slated for release in 2014.
