Ubisoft explains why The Division lacks splitscreen play

Ubisoft has explained why The Division lacks a split-screen multiplayer mode and it seems to come down to the fact that it probably wouldn't have worked very well.

Speaking to finder.com, Creative Director Magnus Jansen said "One of the biggest reasons why there is nothing like that in The Division is because of the progression nature of the game.

"Being able to seamlessly move from single, to co-op, to online with the same character that you are always improving, is something that you want to do on your own. You don’t want to be tied to whenever another player wants to quit."

Of course that's Jansen's opinion and it may very well be that there are still people out there who love to play together. If any case it's not happening, so it's just as well that the game seems to offer great online alternatives instead.

The Division is scheduled to release on Mar. 08, 2016 for PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One and you can pre-order below. Don't forget that an open beta will also take place later this week.
