Ubisoft has announced at E3 2019 this week that it has partnered up with Netflix in order to release its movie based on the video game called The Division. It will be released in the near future.

Releasing a movie like The Division on Netflix is a smart business decision.

It avoids having to worry about people going to see the movie in the cinema. After all, video game movies have never done really well critically or financially in the past.

By releasing directly on Netflix, the filmmakers don't have to worry about losing all of their money on the budget. The streaming service will allow millions of viewers to see the movie in the comfort of their own home.

Right now not much info has been revealed regarding this movie. We do know that it stars Jessica Chastain and Jake Gyllenhaal as the main characters. Deadpool 2's David Leitch will be the main director.

While more info about the movie will be released at a later date, you can check out the small synopsis posted below as provided by Netflix.

"In the near future, a pandemic virus is spread via paper money on Black Friday, decimating the city of New York and killing millions. By Christmas, what’s left of society has descended into chaos. A group of civilians, trained to operate in catastrophic times, are activated in an attempt to save who and what remains.

The Division and its sequel The Division 2 is out now for you to buy on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The movie should have an official release date very soon.
