Tom Clancy’s The Division made a big splash at E3 last year and while it is still in the development process we’ve learned that it isn’t just Ubisoft Massive that is at the helm of this project. UK based studio Reflections is also helping out with the development, with roughly 40 percent of the studio working on the game.

“We’re working on all of the game’s systems: main characters, enemies, RPG pillars, building Manhattan, online components, and so on,” Reflections MD Pauline Jacquey told Develop.

“There’s so much love for this game at Reflections. Our guys are absolutely crazy about it. So for some of them it’s a life achievement being able to participate in the development of the game.”

Jacquey also added that Ubisoft Massive was behind the initial conception of the game and that Reflections has already been working on it for a few months.

“It’s also classic team size management. You don’t want your team to be too big when you’re in the initial phase of conception, when you need a lot of agility. But when you’re in full production – and given that the game’s scope is gigantic – it needs a big team behind it.”

The studio has also had a hand in other Ubisoft games such as Watch Dogs, Far Cry 3 and Driver: San Francisco.

Are you looking forward to The Division when it eventually releases for Xbox One, PS4, and PC? Let us know in the comments.
