Massive Entertainment: The Division Is Not Being Downgraded, PC Version Gets Our Attention

After what has happened with Assassin’s Creed: Unity, a lot of gamers began wondering whether Massive Entertainment’s The Division will fall victim of this latest ‘downgrade-ation’ trend. Well, that won’t be the case according to Massive’s Martin Hulberg who claimed that the team is trying to get the most out of every machine it uses.

As Martin told YouTube’s Open World Games when asked about the possibility of a future downgrade-ation:

“Downgrading is a weird term to use. Obviously, we want to make a game that looks the best it can on its respective format, so Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. So I think the term downgrade is a bit confusing and weird because we’re trying to get the most out of every machine we use. So Xbox gets its attention, PlayStation gets its attention, and PC of course will be able to cram it up a bit more depending on the hardware you have.”

Now pretty much all developers are claiming this same thing, however we’ll give Massive Entertainment the benefit of the doubt. Let’s not forget that World In Conflict was the best looking strategy game at its time of release, so Massive has the talent and experience to pull this through.

The Division is currently planned for a 2015 release on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
