Looks like someone at Massive Entertainment is a fan of American sitcoms. An easter egg has been found in the Division 2 that references the television show Parks and Recreation. The nod takes the form of a collectable and has a description that gives a nod to the character Ben Wyatt from the show.
Reddit user Vloki was the first to discover the subtle reference and posted a link to a screenshot. The collectable is titled ‘Ace of Hearts’ and reads as follows: “I hear before he came to DC and joined the True Sons, Major Wyatt was mayor of a small icy town in the mid-west. He was a fucking clown then and he’s a fucking clown now. Being mayor doesn’t mean shit, and the only thing ‘major’ about him, is he’s a major dick.”
The description is a reference to Wyatt’s past in Parks and Rec, and is a running gag in the show. In the series, Wyatt explains that he became mayor of Partridge, Minnesota at 18 and bankrupted the town by creating a winter sports complex called Ice Town.
At least now we get to find out what would have happened to him in the alternate reality of The Division 2. I like to imagine that even though he lived through an apocalypse, his love for calzones did not waver.
