This Does Not Mean There Will Be a Single-Player Game Anytime Soon

The creative director of The Division 2 is Julian Gerighty. Gerighty is known for his work on The Crew (2014) and multiple installments of the popular Splinter Cell franchise. Today in a tweet he is asking his followers what they think of a potential single-player spin-off of The Division 2.

The question comes in response to another tweet from game designer Tim Spencer. Spencer is known for his works on the Lego video game. Interestingly, Spencer also has credits in quality assurance for both Fable: The Lost Chapters (2005) and Fable: Anniversary (2014).

In his tweet, Spencer says”I love the idea of a single player narrative driven spin off of [The Division 2]. Focusing on an agent trying to get home to their family after being sent to NYC, during the SHD blackout from the fall of DC. TLOU x Division.”

He continues, “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.”

At the very least, Gerighty is asking fans what they think of this. It definitely is an interesting idea, especially seeing as many people criticize The Division 2 for lack of storytelling. Many games benefit greatly from their ability to bring characters to life and create empathetic attachments. A single-player spin-off is a great opportunity to delve into what makes every character tick.

It is unlikely this leads to anything. Most likely this is merely Gerighty having some fun with his followers. But we can dream. Oh yes, we can dream.
