For those who are in love with The Division and looking forward to seeing where things go, we’ve got bad news: The times, they are a-changing.
Ryan Barnard, director for The Division is no longer with Ubisoft. He has started in a brand new positon as Gameplay Director at Io Interactive, makers of Hitman. Io hasn’t really said what the position intails, but we can say that it is a new positon. That’s about all we know.
According to Io’s post on all the happenings, “Ryan will focus on expanding on the near-endless possibilities of gameplay that a game like HITMAN possesses. This means heading up the future efforts of three of our very core teams – gameplay, online and world – which will be no small task.”
So there you have it. It will be interesting to see where things go, both with Io having him on board now and with Ubisoft not having him.
