The Division 2 Major Update Pushed to Next Year

An update from The Division 2 team has the latest on Ubisoft's open-world action game. Earlier this year plans for a major update were revealed to add new content "for release late 2021 at the earliest." Turns out this will not be at the earliest, after all, as the update is now coming next year:
We know that we have been particularly quiet in the recent months, and we would like to first take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and trust.

Earlier this year, we shared our commitment to continue to support The Division 2 and work with new partners within Ubisoft to keep on improving the game experience for all our players. Since then, our team has been hard at work to develop exciting new content with a new game mode as well as significant endgame changes & features.

While plans were still being actively discussed at that point, it was critical for us to give you some early insights about what would come next for the game. Since then, we made various iterations on the plans and actively challenged ourselves not to compromise on quality and ambitions for this new content. This title Update will be one of our most ambitious to date.

We remain confident that this content will bring an exciting experience to our players and pave the way for the future of The Division 2 with future title updates coming in 2022. That being said, and to make sure we deliver this content on par with our vision, we have made the decision to move our new season, game mode and associated content release to February 2022.

This additional time will allow our passionate development team to deliver the best quality for this new content. Of course, we will in the meantime continue to support the game and work on most pressing live issues.

Cool, thanks, I guess I'll read up on whatever they are proposing on or after Thursday. Then of course just play others stuff regardless until February.

I admit, they've got me curious, as to what the heck they will even do to the game at this point. The original playerbase is almost entirely gone, aside from a few die-hards and people like myself who check in every couple of months then leave again. There are random injections of sale players, but there is a limit to the content, and the raids are completely unfriendly to new players at this point.

I hope they don't add more raids... it'd be a complete waste for about 95% of the playerbase, transitory as it is.

Also, for fuck's sake, add ways that aren't ridiculous, for solo players to get the raid guns. That's basically all I'm missing, and I have sworn to never join any guilds ever again.

They're apparently going to do a specialization overhaul, which is going to be posted about in an article this Thursday. No idea what the new game mode is going to be... I'm afraid it's just going to be some PvP mode or something, since they still always seem like that's what they want to push, despite it being a disaster and their last "game mode" was Summit... which was probably the most boring, terribly thought out (or not thought out) addition. I still didn't even bother finishing it.

Honestly, I have more fun playing D1 then I do D2 at this point.
