    I'm thinking since it's in the hands of the 'The Division' team, there's promise. Twitter is ablaze with people thinking that means EA's exclusive rights to make Star Wars games is going to see friction, though I believe their 10yr contract is still going through to 2023. They also JUST tweeted this in response:

    For those of you living in the UK, my friend Mr_JordanL will be hosting a charity stream for the British Red Cross' Anti-Loneliness campaign. He will be playing Hitman 3 for 20 hours! The link to the fundraiser campaign is here. Please check out his announcement video, edited by yours truly:

    See i was thinking the opposite, I played the last Division and it felt exactly like Ghost Recon, which felt exactly like the first Division (which could be argued was gameplay wise very similar to the Assassins Creed/Watch Dogs games at that time) And i ended up dropping D2 very quickly after picking it up for 5. Most open world Ubi games are pretty much the same game with a different setting, so i'm not holding my breathe if this turns out to be Division 3 in space. I mean that and the people in charge at Ubi ARE THE WORST.

    Game testers don't get nearly enough credit. Sure, they're getting paid to play games all day. But it's often just a small section of a game. And they're playing it over and over and over again. And it could be incredibly broken at that point. And it could be a terrible game. It's not nearly as fun of a job as it sounds.

    It's good to see the socials are backing up QA testers (also noticed a few people in the industry and close to CDPR were liking a lot of the stuff) so i think it's safe to say they REALLY hit a nerve throwing the QA's under the bus.

    This is true. I used to be one during the beginning of the PS3 era... It's also HARD to get a good game to test. Only game I was able to get a position in that was considered good was COD 4 and wait for it....... Madden 2007. You can also get canned at a moments notice.
