He was beforehand the affiliate inventive director on the primary recreation earlier than changing into the lead inventive director on the sequel. And now, in keeping with Ubisoft, he’s “setting his sights on” The Division 3 in addition to a “plethora of different initiatives set in The Division universe.”

“We could have over 40 million gamers,” mentioned Gerighty, “however The Division continues to be in its early years as a franchise. There are such a lot of unbelievable tales to inform, locations to discover, and other people to guard. “
