Canceled Division game began as a battle royale mode for The Division 2 before Ubisoft had “other ideas” for the free-to-play spin-off

The Division Heartland, the now-canceled free-to-play take on the looter shooter series, was originally set to be a battle royale mode.

Publisher Ubisoft scrapped The Division Heartland just yesterday to redeploy resources to “bigger opportunities,” such as the company’s fledgling FPS XDefiant, coming next month, and further Rainbow Six Siege projects, including a mobile rendition. But Heartland began life as a pretty big opportunity itself as a battle royale contender.
