The Division DLC Delayed to Address “Lingering Issues”

The Division

Ubisoft delays the launches of Survival and Last Stand in order to “strengthen the core experience before adding new content.”

Ubisoft announced today that The Division‘s upcoming expansions, Survival and Last Stand, have been delayed. The announcement was made in a blog post, and acknowledged the “lingering issues” the game has. Survival will release on a “later date this year,” while Last Stand will come out in early 2017.

“This new schedule will not only enable us to strengthen the core experience before adding new content, but also continuously improve it by allowing for more production time to ensure the quality of future updates as well,” the post reads.

Ubisoft is currently working on a new update, 1.4, which will tackle the game’s “most pressing issues.” You can see an outline of what will be focused on in that update below:

  • 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 balancing
  • Solo player experience
  • Dark Zone and PvP balancing
  • Quality of life additions based on community suggestions (such as weapon skins no longer taking inventory space)
