[Note: Minor spoilers for The Division follows]

As per the norm for Ubisoft games, they like to reference different series within most of their games.

Whilst playing The Division I've spotted Rabbids, Sam Fisher's goggles, BUD from Grow Home, and a few other novelties. Anyway, I've been paying particular attention for any AC easter eggs, such as an Abstergo logo, or something of interest within the 300 odd collectibles. I did see a poster that looked like the Assassin logo, but of more interest is an ECHO involving a recurring character called David Hawkings.

He actually appears a few times. The first time he exclaims how he has suddenly been able to escape near death situations with great dexterity and apparently improved vitality. You later find out that he has been taking medication for extreme anxiety, and it makes you wonder if something inside him has triggered, be it the bleeding effect or just plain Eagle Vision.

Anyhoo, what is far more interesting is his second appearance, which is high up in a construction site. If you want to find the location yourself, you can find it several stories up on the east side of 46th Street. (as below)

Once you climb up there, you again find David. His friend (partner maybe) tries to talk him away from the edge, but in the end he leaps off the building.

I had a look at the position where he would have landed, and surprisingly enough there was no haystack. What is interesting though is that when you look in the intel menu, it specifically states that he performed a leap of faith.

He survives, is seemingly unharmed, but is shaken by his new found abilities. In the end, it is probably just a fun vague reference to AC, including his surname - Hawkings - which references a bird's name. There are also a series of phone calls made by a vigilante who talks about dropping down on villains in alleyways, but I don't believe it is the same voice actor.

Either way, modern day assassins are seemingly alive and well. Unless the Green Poison got them. :p

I found an echo of him south of the Lincoln Memorial in Division 2. Check it out.
