I think we can be certain that this game will be coming to PC. A post from a few days ago in the Ubisoft forums -- referring to a livestream Machinima interview with a dev.

Quote:
Machinima has been running a livestream and they just finished talking with the devs from The Division one of the fan questions was will it be coming to PC. They said currently they are focusing on Next Gen consoles, but if there is the demand for a PC version it will be made. They even said straight up sign petitions, get on the forums and post your requests.

So I think it's more than obvious now that we'll be getting a PC version, and maybe not too far off from launch day either. Perhaps it will be released on launch day, even. The fact that Massive is doing this leaves me to believe the PC version will not be complete crap.

And I would bet my left testicle the version displayed all week at E3 was the PC version played with a PS4 or Xbone controller.

This is kind of upsetting though, I mean, after the massive sales Far Cry 3 had on the PC, and the fact that the Division is in a genre that already does a stellar job on the platform, not for a second do I believe they're not going to do a PC version or that they didn't have intentions in doings so from the get-go.

I think they're doing their usual back and forth with the PC community, while trying to capitalize on the free press and attention the community can provide when they throw all their weight behind something. It's a low ball move, imo, and a bit disrespectful to the PC community.

But, basically, they will release it on PC, but they want good will and some free marketing first

It's irritating for PC gamers to have to do this in order to get confirmation on something that's probably already in the works anyways, but this is still good news nonetheless.
