Since launching in 2020, Warzone has amassed 100 million players and made hundreds of millions in monetization. It's a monster for engagement and revenues, and all of gaming's major players are watching. Now it looks like Ubisoft may get in on the action with its own F2P Division game.

Ubisoft recently announced The Division Heartland, a new standalone F2P title on consoles and PC. Ubisoft says that Heartland will deliver a "new perspective on the universe in a new setting," so it'll run parallel to The Division 2 (which is also getting more content.

While Ubisoft hasn't confirmed whether or not Heartland will connect to The Division 2 in some way, it's highly likely that Ubisoft creates its own inter-connected Warzone-esque ecosystem. The Warzone Effect is simply too powerful to ignore.
