Tom Clancy's The Division (8)

When The Division were first announced and revealed at E3 last year, we were all very impressed by how good it looked. Some more so than others, though. Hideo Kojima, famed creator of the Metal Gear Solid series, told developers Massive Entertainment that he thought The Division was so good, it made him want to quit his job.

“What meant more to us than maybe anything else, is that we had every single competing developer come over to our booth and asking for a show,” Massive Entertainment’s Managing Director David Polfeldt told Examiner. “Two minutes after E3 opened, we had Hideo Kojima come over to the Ubisoft booth and he said I want to see The Division. Then the press guy said politely, ‘okay so do you want to see the other Ubisoft games?’ [Kojima replied] ‘nope I just want to see The Division.’

“The very first presentation we did at E3 was made for Hideo Kojima and his interpreter. Then he leans forward to his interpreter and he says ‘you guys are so good, it makes me want to quit my job.’ So that was the first presentation at E3, and you can imagine after having been in what we felt like a coal mine for a long time, you get [Hideo Kojima coming over to see The Division] within 5 minutes of the show opens.

“We were like ‘dude, this is going to work.’ We had DICE over, we had Destiny over, everybody else came over and said guys, ‘this is excellent, what have you been doing? Please show it to us.’ That was a career highlight, absolutely!”

Well, if a game can impress Hideo Kojima so much, it can certainly get us excited as all hell.

Stay tuned for more coverage on The Division, and tell us why you’re looking forward to the game- if you are- in your comments.

    He quits his job I’m gonna quit gaming.

    • Psionicinversion

      Bye then!!!

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      well of course though we both know Kojima won’t quit, so don’t bode farewell so soon.

    • Dakan45

      yeah because kojima is everything gaming is and without his annual input gaming is dead.

      In reallity he keeps making metal gear games ever 6 years.

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Sounds like you’re not happy that he continues work on Metal Gear. but then again he’s wanted to move onto other things himself while still supervising Metal Gear.

    • Dakan45

      I dont have strong feelings one way or another, the game looks impressive, i have seen the trailer mutiple times. But seriously the metal gear storyline is a complete mess right now.

      Phantom pain is a sequel to a secret ending in metal gear peace walker…a ridiculus one

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Okay, then let’s hope The Phantom Pain ties up all the loose knots and bridges the gap between the older and newer chronological titles, which Ground Zeroes didn’t do so well at all.

    • Dakan45

      its funny, but i care more about infiltrating enemy bases the way i want than the story.

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      That’s because Ground Zeroes didn’t have a heavy focus on story and was more focused on giving you freedom on how you infiltrate the base. for phantom pain you will surely have more emphasis on the story especially since it will be a more full-size title trust me you will enjoy both qualities of the game once you play the phantom pain unlike Ground zeroes.

    • Dakan45

      wait the full game will be more linear?

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      no the game will be much more open world and expansive and dynamic than ground zeroes but since it’s a full game this story will be more inclusive just like other metal gears except in an open-world setting

    • Dakan45

      sounds interesting.

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Indeed. Let’s hope Kojima elaborates more on it at E3.

    • Dakan45

      ehmm kojima likes to troll people though… so yeah.. i will be cautious.

      I cant wait for E3 to come out so we can see the new games.

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Totally and it’s gonna be awesome.

    • Dakan45

      yeah if watchdogs, wolfenstein and evil within can be awesome as well and not flop like most game recently that will be great.

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      exactly

    • SGTBuzzyBean

      The Metal Gear Solid universe basically focused on two storylines. The one from Big Boss and Solid Snake. It’s not really a mess in fact it’s pretty amazing the way Kojima is handling the two storylines. Also, if you don’t want so much story then this game is not for you. One of the series selling points IS it’s story.

      Meh, the storyline is ridiculus at this point.

    • SGTBuzzyBean

      Did you even play any of the MGS games or are you just basing your statement off that Ground Zeroes ripoff?

    • Dakan45

      Yeah i played them, but like i said AT THIS POINT the storyline is a mess.

    • Brian Lee

      I hope they include ground zeroes for like $10 more.
