In development at Ubisoft Massive, the impressive-looking Tom Clancy game was announced on June 11 for Xbox One and PS4.

In the past two weeks, over 110,000 people have signed a petition requesting that Ubisoft also release the title on PC.

Speaking to IGN in a video interview, a Ubisoft spokesperson said: "We're set for release in winter 2014 on PS4 and Xbox One, but we're not ruling out other platforms because we do also read the internet.

"I think Ubisoft as a company considers maximising the potential of a game," he added, "so if the audience is there and the desire is there..."

Ubisoft Massive creative director Niklas Cederstrom also said: "It's very clear when you read the forums what people miss."

The game, which has been in development for "a little over a year", takes place in New York following the release of a devastating manmade virus. Players step into the boots of agents from The Division, a classified unit fighting to prevent the collapse of society.
