A YouTube user discovers a number of secret Easter eggs that have been hidden in Tom Clancy’s The Division, all of which are related to Ubisoft’s other new IP’s.
Tom Clancy’s The Division has only been out for a day, and aside from some PC server issues, it appears that the game has been met with an overwhelming response from gamers everywhere. From some very impressive early achievements, such as hitting the level cap just 15 hours in, to some incredibly passive aggressive trolling, such as the presence of ‘griefers‘, it definitely appears that The Division has struck a chord with everyone. But the recent discovery of a couple of Easter eggs is perhaps the most interesting feature found so far in the game.
YouTuber OniZombies has managed to discover a couple of Easter eggs that reference a couple of Ubisoft games, the upcoming For Honor and the experimental Grow Home. Found in the Firewall Safe House, this location is filled to the brim with Ubisoft Easter eggs. Next to all the glaring Ubisoft logos plastered on the walls of this safe house, gamers can find the main character of Grow Home dangling from the room, or painted on various cubicle walls. As for the For Honor Easter egg, there’s a massive poster for the upcoming game that’s pretty hard to miss.

This is not the first time that Ubisoft has used Easter eggs as a way to promote their other games, as eagle-eyed gamers would have noticed that the Abstergo Entertainment computers in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag contained a reference to the then-upcoming Watch Dogs. But what makes the two Ubisoft Easter eggs in The Division interesting is that the developer chose to reference two games with very little buzz going for them.
After the stunning E3 2015 reveal of For Honor, not much has been revealed about the game since. Couple that with the low-key release of Ubisoft’s Grow Home back in February 2015, there isn’t exactly a lot of hype going for either For Honor or Grow Home at the moment. With Watch Dogs 2 in the works, and Ubisoft’s announcement last year that a brand new triple-A game will be released before March 2016, it looks as though Ubisoft missed a chance to hide something buzzworthy in The Division.
Having said that, The Division has only been out for one day, and there are bound to be many more Easter eggs and references to be found. Perhaps there’s a Watch Dogs 2 Easter egg, or a reference to that still-unreleased triple-A Ubisoft game still lurking around somewhere in The Division‘s virus-ravaged New York City.
Tom Clancy’s The Division is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
