Far Cry 4 may be making a somewhat surprise appearance on the PlayStation 4 this November, but Tom Clancy’s The Division has been placed back in the gun cabinet until next year. The open world shooter had been set to deploy this Christmas, but developer Ubisoft Massive has stressed that it will not compromise the action RPG’s quality in order to hit the aforementioned deadline.

“Working on The Division is a once in a lifetime opportunity for all of us at Massive, Reflections, and Red Storm Entertainment,” a studio spokesperson explained on the game's official website. “We are creating something that we are really proud of, and we don’t want to compromise on quality. We are going to release the game when it’s ready.”

Despite the delay, the title will be on display at E3 next month, with the developer stressing that it can’t wait to reveal what it’s been up to. Much like Watch Dogs before it, the release dropped jaws last year due to its outrageous graphical fidelity. The sandbox shooter is just one of many upcoming next-gen releases that aims to blur the lines between single player and multiplayer.
