Has it been explicitly stated that the other series of the Tom Clancy universe won't be involved/incorporated in The Division? If so, where? For I was wondering about tie-ins and the like not too long ago.
Edit: I'm not sure the year the game takes place in has been given.
It's most likely 2007, as it stated. November 23, 2007 was a Friday. This is probably in December, not basing it on the snow. I'm basing that on the in-game footage they've shown where you'll find things and it'll say that it happened "11 days" ago or such. Showing a place full of life saying it was like that 11 days ago leads me to believe that at game start, the date is December 4th, 2007 (A Tuesday).
Actually, the game probably IS set in 2018. First off, there is a large amount of advance technology present in this game, stuff that wouldn't surprise me to be more present in the nearing future here (drones, for example, as shown in the game trailers). It was discussed that the Division agents were created in 2007, nowhere does it state that the events of the game take place DURING that smae year that they were created. In fact, that means the Division agents recieved a few months of training, which I somewhat doubt would be enough to counter the collapse of America.
The mythology is that a disease was spread on black friday and since thats always the friday after thanksgiving the year is hard to speculate. As far as the year is concerned the game has weapons that were not even created until the early 2010's so 2007 is kind of a stretch.
it is definitely after 2012. There is one phone log where two girls are having a conversation about a craft beer party and one says something about Hipsters and "...what is this 2012" or something along the lines...
I have seen an advertisement on some scaffolding from a construction company saying that the current work will be completed in 2032, and a buddy of mine says that it's set in 2025. I'll see if I can dig around and find something solid on this.
The Black Friday when the plague hits happens on the 23rd of a November. The Chelsea Piers sign means it had to have occurred in 2020. There is no Nov 23 in 2020, nor again until 2029. The Green Poison hits Nov 23, 2029 (or possibly later). Nurse and National recordings speak of deaths beginning mid-Dec (14th mentioned explicitly), so it's reasonable to assume that we are in 2030 as it seems unlikely that the Dark Zone was cordoned off in 10 days. We in 2030.
