Ubisoft Seemingly Published The Division: Heartland Store Page By Mistake, Shuts It Down And Confirms Weekend Showcase
Guess they jumped the gun or were testing the site out before official release?
The Division: Heartland, Ubisoft's free-to-play battle royale title currently in development, was seemingly leaked by the company via the Ubisoft Store by mistake. What was there before Ubisoft shut down the page for Heartland displayed a "coming soon" and product details. Later, the publisher confirmed the title would appear during their Ubisoft Forward this weekend, which may mean Heartland is lining up for its projected release for 2022.
Twitter user Unknown1Z1 spotted the leaked The Division: Heartland store page yesterday before the page was shut down when Ubisoft caught wind of its discovery. Thankfully, Unknown1Z1 posted a short clip of them scrolling down the store page, and what's there doesn't say much.
The Division Heartland is now available in the Ubisoft Store listed as "Coming Soon" #thedivisionheartland #thedivision #comingsoon #f2p @TheDivisionGame https://t.co/pydu6vY2mn pic.twitter.com/tuBbNpcdDK

The Division: Heartland had a PC download listed, some screenshots, product details, and of course, the notorious "coming soon" attached. These bits of information are more-or-less self-explanatory or already out in the wild, which pale compared to other leaks.
What makes this interesting, however, is the official The Division 2 Twitter page confirming Heartland would be a part of the September 10 Ubisoft Forward showcase. About four or so hours ago, actually. Maybe the store page was available to test it out before an official date and website reveal went live during the stream?
Though that's all speculation on my part, we'll have to wait and see how things turn out this weekend. With so many big titles set to appear, like Assassin's Creed Mirage and more The Division 2 updates, an estimated date reveal on when this battle royale will be ready might happen.
