The Division Servers Going Down Tomorrow, Here's Exactly When and for How Long

Five-hour downtime kicks off at 2 AM EST.

37 Comments

Ubisoft will conduct regular maintenance on The Division's servers tomorrow, June 2, the company has announced. The downtime will span about 5 hours, beginning at 2 AM EST and running through approximately 7 AM EST.

This was announced in the Ubisoft forums today. As for what's being changed with the update, Ubisoft isn't saying. Under Changelog, Ubisoft wrote "TBA."

No Caption Provided

This maintenance period is not out of the ordinary. Ubisoft conducts regular maintenance of the servers every Thursday; this used to happen on Tuesdays.

May was a big month for The Division. The game's latest free update, 1.2/Conflict, came out at the end of month, introducing a new Incursion, more PvE content, and changes to the loot system, among other things. For more on the update, check out the full patch notes here.

The new update has not gone entirely to plan, as it's caused some characters to vanish. You can check out this GameSpot story to see even more of The Division's known issues caused by 1.2.

Looking ahead, Ubisoft will release three paid expansions for The Division (Underground, Survival, and Last Stand), though we don't know much yet about what they contain or when they'll be released.

I don't know why they didn't include an offline mode. I paid money for this and I should be able to play it when I want.

At this point they would cause less grief by returning the DZ to the way it was when released. I must admit, it was much more stressful/intense back then. I would even call it fun.

I really loved the game...until I realized I kept dying in the DZ by rogues because everyone was glitching their way to victory. The glitches absolutely ruined the entirety of the game when you got level 30 characters that pop you in two shots. This is when I had some high-end gear where my primary did 135k and 115k secondary with 80k health. Sneaking up on a rogue and unloading on him should kill him but nope...he turned around and dead.

You people are sad. Stop thinking the world revolves around you. There are plenty of people playing this game. Waaaaa.... crybabies. The HVT addition basically adds DZ style intensity to the outside. You think it's lame, try going after high level HVT's by yourself as I have done. You bought the game, so if you want to stop playing it, fine. Your money. Don't complain if you happen to suck at it. Get help. So tired of whiners saying they are done playing something as if we should all follow suit. This game was designed for squad based combat to get the best stuff. If you don't have people with you, life is going to be hard. I wonder what level all of you are, but honesty is not always prevalent in forums.

@topgun182: People are complaining because it's a broken game full of bugs. Not because they suck. Most people played in groups. So their complaints are valid and I agree with them. Broken games suck and isn't tolerated.

@elmarine2064: It's not broken. I've reached level 30(gear179) and started a new game and am up to level 18. BY MYSELF. Pretty hard to do that if the game is so broken. Every game ever made has glitches and bugs. Not a single one has hampered my game-play significantly. The complaints outweigh reality. And if you are playing in a group, you should be breezing through compared to what I've encountered. Just not buying it...

@topgun182: sorry, the game is garbage. It had so much potential to be great but failed miserably. Luckily I bought it on the PS4 so I only had to put up with moderate glitching. I don't know how PC players did it.

I played a lot until they started to "fix it". I had fun but it was short lived. Each fix ruined the game further and further. The devs are clueless as to what players want.

If you still like the game, that's awesome. Just don't come on here outraged that the majority of gamers have come to hate this game. You are acting like a Division forum mod.

@millionsedge: "Majority"? So you took a poll? And believe me, I am so far from outraged over this. What I am acting like is the luckiest guy in the world to not have experienced all of this brokenness you speak of. And I'm on a PC. Always seem to be plenty of people running around when I play. I guess we are in the minority. Oh and I've never been in a Division forum, but I take it the mods like the game too...

@topgun182: steam Showed stats on it's player base weeks ago. Take a look. You are new to the game, enjoy it now. It does grow stale rather quick. Once you stop playing you generally won't have much urge to come back.

@millionsedge: One. I'm not on Steam. Two. I guess you missed the part where I said I'm on my second playthrough, so I don't know why you think I'm new. I played the beta. Before 1.2, it was getting pretty dull outside of the DZ after the endgame. Now it's not. HVT's give me something else to do, as well as another way to gain gear and credits. Being able to help your new player level up with better gear than the first time adds some depth to the game. Plus it gives you extra stash space since your other player can hold items. If I ever get into a group, I can do the missions I can't alone. I paid for it, so I'm going to play it. I'm sorry, like I said, my experience is just not like yours.

@millionsedge: There is a difference in not liking the game and claiming it is broken and no one is playing it. Nothing hypocritical about proving that wrong. I refuse to believe I am the only person not having the same experience people are complaining about. Or am I just special? Even you tried to tell me I would get bored since I was "new". I guess if I started over that hasn't happened has it?

Can't believe they made the Dz worse with the last patch, now the gangs of rogue agents can cut the rope to stop people getting their hard earned equipment out, then instead of picking it up and extracting it themselves they leave it and wait for the poor sod to go back and try and get it back, just to die again and rinse and repeat.

The extra missions and named enemies in the main city are an improvement over the lifeless city from before, but after a couple of times i can't be bothered.

DZ could have been something quite big. A good idea poorly developed in the end -_-

This game was so hyped when it was coming out and now look. Multiplayer games are a joke for playing longterm.

Nearly paid £100 for the sleeper agent edition. Only reason is that watch looked cool.

That's fine. Everyone has moved on anyway. Massive alienated half the fan base with their craziness and the other half left because of the lack of content/glitches. Epic fail...

My friends and I ceased playing a few weeks ago. They ruined DZ, and adding NPC Leader missions to the single player map was a really lame attempt at giving me some PvE content.

Done, moved on.

I assume it can't be long now until they go down forever. I don't think there is much of a player base left. Which is unfortunate, considering the promise that the game held.

I TRULY hope that GR: Wildlands can avoid the same pitfalls that The Division made; as I am really, really pumped about GR.

Everyone I met in the game has stopped playing. I popped in for a few minutes, got bored after doing one HVT and getting garbage loot again. There were no dailies again. Game is just too bug ridden and not enough loot drop value to sustain. Plus they need to bring back old crafting.
