An alleged insider to Ubisoft Massive's development of Tom Clancy's The Division is not convinced it will make the current autumn 2015 release window, as they "don't have a functioning game" at this stage.

In fact they're having "massive problems" with the multiplayer side of things. The original 2014 date announced by Ubisoft was a 'punch in the face' to the studio, they continued.

Work on the Snowdrop Engine over at Ubisoft Massive in Sweden began "very early on, like, around five years ago," reveals brand art director Rodrigo Cortes. It was "coupled" with The Division almost immediately.

Massive wanted a AAA game competing with the best but "while having a reasonably-sized studio" work on it, and so Snowdrop was started. It's about 'all the little things' for immersion.
