A single-player game set in The Division universe may not be impossible to see. Julian Gerighty, The Division 2‘s creative director, replied to a tweet that proposed the idea and asked the players for their thoughts on the matter. Tim Spencer, TT Games designer, author of the tweet, explained why he thought that game could be “a good idea.”
“None of the stories have explored what a Division agent sacrifices, and what they go through mentally. When you think about it: it’s a pretty dark/epic thing – there’s huge opportunity to tell some incredible stories there.”

Spencer also had a few more suggestions to share. The game could focus on an agent trying to get home to their family, and the events would take place after the mission in NYC, during the SHD blackout from the fall of DC.
“…all I want is a pad of postit notes and a marker pen to write down all the epic stories our agent could have, in chapters, through their long journey home during the fall of society haunted by nightmares of what could have happened to their family, because they answered the call of the SHD, so weren’t there to protect them during the fall.”
After Gerighty’s retweet, many people reacted favorably to the possibility of a single-player The Division experience. While Gerighty acknowledged the positive reception to the idea, he didn’t have anything concrete to offer about it.
Apparently not something people are violently against 🙂
