Developed by Ubisoft Massive with help from Tom Clancy's Red Storm Entertainment, The Division is set in a dystopian New York where a deadly strain of smallpox has ripped through the city. Players take on the role of an agent in the Strategic Homeland Division, referred to as The Division, whose task it is to help piece together how the outbreak started and neutralize rival gangs seeking to rule New York.
Given that the game launched with a collection of live-action stories, news of a movie shouldn't come as much of a surprise. In fact, Ubisoft is on a movie charge as of late, adapting the Michael Fassbender-led Assassin's Creed for the big screen and Splinter Cell starring Tom Hardy (those Brits get everywhere). According to Variety, Ubisoft is seeking to add another actor to the movie before offering it to studios, suggesting it could be a little while until we see Gyllenhaal officially activated as an agent.
