The Division Won't Have Player Trading System at Launch

The Division will not include a gameplay system that allows players to buy and sell items with one another, at least not at launch. Associate creative director, Julian Gerighty, explained to GamesRadar why the feature, which was reportedly talked about prior to launch, won't make it into the game for its debut in March.
"It's the reality of production. Some features make it, some features don't," he said, adding that the decision came down to a "priority of different features."

Gerighty continued, saying, as The Division is an ongoing, evolving game, it's possible that a player trading system could come someday.

"It's something that obviously some people are very passionate about," he said. "It'll maybe make an appearance in the future."

Player trading systems aren't uncharted territory in games, as World of Warcraft has had such a system for years. Another Activision game, Destiny, may introduce player trading someday, too. After multiple delays, The Division's full release is now scheduled for March 8 across Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
