Ubisoft has canceled its upcoming free-to-play shooter, Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland, amid larger plans to focus resources on “bigger opportunities.”

The company will move resources to “bigger opportunities” such as XDefiant and Rainbow Six

This news was revealed as a part of Ubisoft’s earnings release friday morning, with the company saying it has “redeployed resources to bigger opportunities such as XDefiant and Rainbow Six.” The move is part of a larger, longer process Ubisoft has been undergoing in recent quarters to restructure its teams, cut costs, and concentrate its resources into fewer, bigger games.

Ubisoft offered the following statement on the cancellation:

After careful consideration, we have made the tough call to halt development on Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland, effective immediately. Our priority now is to support the talented team members at our Red Storm Entertainment studio, who will be transitioning to new projects within our company, including XDefiant and Rainbow Six.


The Division Heartland was first announced back in 2021, and was being developed by North Carolina-based Red Storm Entertainment. It was quietly delayed not long after its reveal with its planned release moving to last fiscal year, but it never materialized. Heartland did go through multiple testing phases, and was in a publicly playable state. Recently, it received a rating in Taiwan, leading fans to believe its release was imminent, but this seems to have been a false alarm.

Ubisoft has been on a game-cancelling spree of late, having shut down three unannounced games including its mysterious Project Q, as well as Immortals Fenyx Rising 2 just last year.


The prior year, Ubisoft cancelled four other unannounced games, with the company explaining its decision by saying it had been trying to make too many games at once.

For the full year, Ubisoft reported €2.3 billion ($2.5 billion) in net bookings, and €401 million ($436 million) in operating income.
