Just a few minutes ago, a brand new trailer was shown for The Division 2 at the high-profile Xbox event at E3 in Los Angeles.
A statement from Ubisoft said,”We’re thrilled to announce that we are working on Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, and that development will be led by Massive Entertainment in collaboration with Ubisoft Reflections, Red Storm Entertainment, Ubisoft Annecy, Ubisoft Shanghai and Ubisoft Bucharest.
“The Division 2 will be powered by an updated version of the Snowdrop engine that enables us to realize our ambitions for the sequel, but more importantly, we’re also taking everything we learned over the past two years and applying it towards the sequel to make sure we get it right.”

Ubisoft has also stated that they are adding a new type of achievement to The Division which, when unlocked, will enable players to access special items in The Division 2.
The game takes place in Washington D.C. in the summer as opposed to the first game’s NYC winter setting.
Here’s some in-game footage…and it looks amazing.
Apparently, there is a solo play mode, co-op with a team of up to four players to complete a wide range of activities, plus campaign and adversarial PvP matches to the Dark Zone, very much like the successful formula of the original.
