An Ubisoft Massive representative has told IGN that Tom Clancy’s The Division will not have a companion app as the developer has made the decision to cancel it. Apparently, the app “created an imbalance” that affected gameplay.
Originally announced in 2013, The Divison‘s companion app was supposed to set players as a drone within the world. Console players could see the drone in real time while app users were supposed to be able to see what’s happening in the game. In our E3 2014 preview, PlayStation LifeStyle’s Chandler mentioned that the drone could “offer buffs and debuffs, such as, increasing players’ armor, marking enemy positions, and healing player characters, etc.”
The Division launches on March 8, 2016 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
