During Ubisoft’s E3 2019 press conference, a wealth of new Division news dropped, including details on the upcoming movie adaptation of The Division.

The Division Movie Will Air on Netflix
The concept behind The Division film is the same as the one featured in the game and centers on a viral pandemic which quickly spreads, leaving chaos in its wake. As the player, you’re left to try and rebuild New York and combat the rampant criminal activity that’s sprung up in the pandemic’s wake. In the past, Ubisoft took a stab at adapting one of their other properties, Assassin’s Creed.
While it was met with mixed reviews, it made Ubisoft a lot of money. As such, it makes sense they’d follow it with other adaptations, including The Division. With so many big names attached to the project, we honestly can’t wait to see how The Division film turns out. Right now, there’s no estimated release date or trailer content to dissect.
Stay tuned, as we’ll be posting more on The Division film as new information becomes available.
