A new report reveals that The Division is now the most popular game on Xbox One
Ubisoft Entertainment SA’s (OTCMKTS:UBSFY) The Division has been widely popular among RPG fans out there. The game has managed to break many records in the short span of time since its release and now it looks like the game has achieved yet another accolade in its already massive list.
According to recent reports, the Division has recently taken the number one spot in the popularity list on Microsoft Corporation’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) Xbox One. The game has managed to beat the previously most popular game, Activision Blizzard Inc.’s (NASDAQ:ATVI) Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. The Call of Duty series has been popular on Xbox Live in recent years and has been very popular among Xbox One users. However, it looks like that popularity might be dying down, and the Division overthrowing the game’s leading position might be the first sign of it.
The Division has been a massive hit since its release. The game has been able to get everything right, even attracting players from Activision Blizzard Inc.’s (NASDAQ:ATVI) Destiny as well. Destiny has been facing a drought of content in its year two and has not been able to give replay value to its players. However, it can be said that the game’s popularity right now might be because of the extreme hype that was built up around it since the game’s original announcement.
The game brings fresh new content for everyone but will it be able to retain players over the course of the year? Well, that remains to be seen and to be really honest, it all depends on the quality and the length of the game’s end-game content. This includes the first incursion, which is set to release sometime next month. Until then, it looks like Ubisoft is having a blast as players dive deep into post-apocalyptic Manhattan.
