While Ubisoft has been confirming that several of its games will be getting a free next-gen port, The Division 2 players have been sitting with their fingers crossed for some positive news. Yesterday, the company comforted The Division 2 fans by confirming that the game will be playable on both the PS5 and Xbox Series X.

However, Ubisoft did not state that the game will be getting a next-port. Instead it was announced that The Division 2 "will be backwards compatible with next-gen consoles." The important thing to know is here is that The Division 2 will not be getting a next-gen port and it may not even be available to play on the consoles' launch day.

The announcement was made during Ubisoft's second digital presentation, Ubisoft Forward. However, it wasn't the only The Division 2 announcement. The game is also said to receive a new update called The Summit. The Summit was described as a replayable game mode in which players have to clear levels of enemies to progress further, with each level becoming more difficult than the previous one. The mode will involve a 100-story skyscraper and each floor of the skyscraper will offer a greater challenge, as well as greater rewards. The Summit update will be dropping on September 22.

It's been well over a year since The Division 2 came out and Ubisoft has supported the game consistently. It also seems that the company is determined to support The Division 2 well into the future as well, but not in a way most fans would have expected. It's interesting to see that even though Ubisoft has new releases coming out in a few months, it doesn't want to leave The Division 2 and its player base behind. Nonetheless, it would have been great to see The Division 2 also receiving a next-gen upgrade, allowing fans to enjoy the game at a glorious 4K and 120 FPS.

The Division 2 is available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Stadia. The game will also be backwards compatible with PS5 and Xbox Series X.
