We remember when people were mad about the fact that you couldn't trade weapons and armour with your friends in Destiny, but really, that particular feature would have put a bullet in the game's lasting power. With that in mind, and with all of the recent comparisons between Bungie's sci-fi adventure and Tom Clancy's The Division, it would appear as though Ubisoft feels the same way about equipment trading in its upcoming open world shooter.
Associate creative director Julian Gerighty told GamesRadar that sharing gear was something that simply didn't make it into the final version of the release. "It's the reality of production. Some features make it, some features don't," he said. "It's something that obviously some people are very passionate about," Gerighty added, before admitting that "it'll maybe make an appearance in the future".
We reckon that's fair enough, but would you have liked to have been able to share your loot with others? Begrudgingly hand over your most powerful rifle in the comments section below.
