Today marks the exact two-year anniversary of the launch of The Division! The anniversary celebration is already well underway with the Global Event Weekends, and we are continuing the celebration today with the announcement that we are already working on The Division 2. We have learned so much over the course of The Division, and we want to take the opportunity to implement those lessons to create the best experience possible for our players. We also want to take advantage of new advancements to the Snowdrop engine.

We are excited to share more news with everyone at this year’s E3 in June.

With The Division 2 in development, that does not mean that we are halting support for The Division. We have two updates on the horizon, with more content and features for our players:

  • Update 1.8.1—launching in April with Legendary modes for Amherst’s apartment and Grand Central Station, the Xbox One X patch (4k rendering, improved reflections/shadows/detail), new Classified acquisition rates, a new Global Event: Blackout followed by new Global Event: Onslaught in May.
  • Update 1.8.2—launching in June with two more Legendary mission modes, the rotation of monthly Global Events, and the new Shields campaign in which completing achievements in The Division grants special rewards in The Division 2.

For a full overview of upcoming events, check out our Roadmap.

We are also launching a two-week PTS tomorrow, March 9th for PC only. Update 1.8.1 features will be available for testing.

Remember that more information about Division 2 will be available at E3 in June. While we are excited for the sequel, support will continue on The Division as usual!

Do not forget that The Global Events are still on rotation throughout the month of March for our anniversary. Global Event: Assault is live now!

A huge thank you to everyone who plays The Division, and we are very much looking forward to the future!

As always, be sure to join us over on the Official Forums or on the community Reddit if you’re looking for a place to discuss all things related to The Division.

Until next time!
