This year, The Division 2 won’t be getting a new season as Ubisoft has decided to delay the upcoming season, game mode, and all related content releases to February 2022. The community had long been waiting for some major content drop but it looks the wait is inevitable now. Ubisoft had earlier assured The Division 2 player base that the new update would arrive “late 2021 at the earliest”. But that has now been pushed to February next year.
The developers confirmed the same in the latest blog post while even sharing some valuable details about the game’s future. Ubisoft decided to delay the new Season and other content to guarantee that everything is “on par” with what they have planned. The delay will provide them with the much-needed time to polish out all the things. In the meantime, the developers will continue to add things to the game and work on bugs and other issues. Here’s the official statement, “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.”
In terms of what the future holds for The Division 2, there’s not much known. Ubisoft said, “it is too early to share all details about this update,” however, ended up sharing a few things in the process. The developers are reintroducing the Intelligence Annex initiative to explain important features and changes every month – starting this Thursday, October 28. This month’s initiative will focus on the Specialisation Revamp. The Division 2 Season 7 will end in December sometime. Ubisoft has come up with an in-game event that will bring some “player-favorite” global events and have new rewards. There’s also an “apparel event” on the cards, which might be a way to give out different skins and cosmetics to players. However, Ubisoft has not revealed much about the event.
