* TheOtherDarrin: While most of the main voice cast reprised their roles in ''The Stetchkov Syndicate'', the [[VoiceWithAnInternetConnection TOC operator]] was voiced by a new actor, not Nate Wells.

It was supposed to be a SurvivalHorror shooter with a squad-based nature (much like SWAT 4) and set in... a noirish city after a mysterious ZombieApocalypse. The project was eventually scrapped in favour of concentrating on ''VideoGame/{{BioShock|1}}''. Three years later, Valve published [[VideoGame/Left4Dead a game with the same basic idea]]. Makes you wonder if ''Division 9'' would've been similarly successful 4 years ago...

Until Irrational decides to developer a more "down to earth" police simulation game set in a more vague setting and with pre-determined character personality that we got. Several in game props such as arcade machines shows this title as an in-joke.
