Ubisoft rebukes recent comments by development team member.
Yesterday, an unnamed developer part of Tom Clancy’s The Division talked about how the PC version of the game was kept “in check” to ensure it didn’t overshadow the visuals on current gen consoles. Obviously this didn’t go over well but Ubisoft has stepped in to deny this and assert the PC version being built from the ground up.
Speaking to GameSpot, a Ubisoft rep said that, “It has come to our attention that a comment from one of our team members has been perceived by some members of the community to imply the PC version of The Division was ‘held back’ and this is simply not true.
“From the beginning, the PC version of The Division was developed from the ground up, and we’re confident players will enjoy the game and the features this version has to offer. And the feedback from PC players who participated in the recent closed beta supports this.”
We’re more likely to believe Ubisoft in this case – after all, the PC beta for Tom Clancy’s The Division was visually superior to the console versions in every way and looks the most similar to the original E3 2013 reveal.
