Ubisoft Apologizes After Promising a “Real Government Shutdown” in Division 2 Beta

Earlier today, Ubisoft sent out a promotional email for the upcoming Division 2 Private Beta.

The email’s subject read “Come see what a real government shutdown looks like in the private beta.” Within an hour, Ubisoft sent out an email apology.

“A marketing email promoting Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 was sent in error today,” it read. “This was a grave breakdown in process and we apologise for this error and the offensive subject line of the email. We recognise the very real impact of the United States government shutdown on thousands of people and did not intend to make light of the situation.”

Apparently Ubisoft can’t decide whether or not it wants to make a political statement with The Division 2.

The Division 2 launches on March 15 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Private Beta begins on February 7. Are you looking forward to The Division 2? Be sure to let us know down below, and follow us on Twitter for quick and easy updates.
