The Division DLC Has Been Delayed So Ubisoft Can Focus on Fixing the Core Game

on August 26, 2016 5:54 AM

The Division’s two upcoming expansion packs have been delayed to allow Ubisoft to focus on fixing issues with the core game.

‘Survival’ and ‘Last Stand’  were previously set to release this summer and winter respectively. However, Survival will now launch later this year, and Last Stand has been pushed back to early 2017.

Developer Ubisoft Massive is working on a major new update to release in October that is focused entirely “on bug fixing, game balancing and other improvements”. The update titled Update 1.4 will be free and released simultaneously across all platforms.

Here’s what the update aims to fix:

  • Fixing bugs, including those listed in our Known Issues as well as many other ones
  • Making loot drops more relevant to the player
  • Enemy difficulty and time to kill
  • Gear Sets and weapons rebalancing
  • Solo player experience
  • Dark Zone and PvP balancing
  • Quality of life additions based on community suggestions (such a weapon skins no longer taking inventory space)

Here’s what Ubisoft had to say:

“We want to take this opportunity to thank you, our community, for being so openly passionate about the game. Our passion is what unites us and allows us to build a better game together! We remain committed to delivering the best experience possible, and will constantly be looking for your feedback as we shape the future of The Division.”


Bad at video games, decent at writing.
