The Division 2 is performing another maintenance period before the full release of the game on PS4, Xbox One and PC, although depending on a recent update, Ubisoft may have to push back their new patch schedule until a later time.
Ubisoft announced the last-minute news as fans prepared for the full release date of the game on Friday, March 15.
“Agents, we’re performing a server restart in 30 minutes, at 10:30 PM CET / 05:30 PM ET 08:30 AM ACT / 6:30 AM KST and the servers are expected to be down for around 20 minutes.”
However, as noted by The Division 2 support team, today’s maintenance period was supposed to be a short event but has since been hit by issues.
It has now been confirmed that the latest patch deployment has run into issues and means that downtime has been pushed back.
“Agents, we encountered an issue with the planned patch and will re-schedule the maintenance.
“We will update you when we know more about the timings. Thanks for your understanding and patience.”
More should be confirmed in the coming hours by Ubisoft, who will be seeing a lot more players hitting the game servers over the next 24 hours.
Patch notes for today’s Division 2 patch can be found below:
- Fixed an issue where players could be stuck in the wrong World Tier if they completed Strongholds without meeting the required Gear Score while in a group
- Fixed an issue where players wouldn’t be able to talk to agent Kelso at the Castle Settlement
- Fixed an issue where players could obtain multiple Ivory Keys from the same source
And with the release of the full game happening over the next 24-hours, more disruption to The Division 2 servers are expected.
Some fans who pre-ordered the game have had access to The Division 2 for the past couple of days.
This has seen a few patches dropped, including the massive day-one patch that brought the full game download to almost 90GB.
This was a little less on Xbox One and PC but will no doubt affect players with tight hard drive space. There’s also a follow-up title update, which weighs in at around 2GB.
The Division 2 Standard Edition has a March 15 release date on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
The game will be playable from midnight tonight, which is when the servers will be turned on in each region.
If you’re unsure whether to pick up a copy of The Division, then you’ll be pleased to hear that the early reviews have been extremely positive for the Ubisoft sequel.
