With the launch of Season 7, we continue to see a great level of activity and conversations from the community. We've been happy to see new players join the fray as they dive into the End of Watch manhunt for the first time, while our veteran players are gearing up to face Faye Lau once again.
In the meantime, we also are aware that that many of you are eagerly waiting for more information about the future of the game.
Today, we would like to provide you some updates regarding the current state of the game as well as some early insights on what is coming next for The Division 2.
Current state of the game
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.
The Road Ahead
While it is too early to share all details about this update, we want to leverage this opportunity to give you a heads-up about how we will move forward and what to expect in the months to come.
First off, we are excited to bring back the Intelligence Annex initiative. On a monthly basis, and until the big reveal of this update, we will release dedicated in-depth articles to detail key features and changes.
The first episode will be released as soon as this Thursday and will feature an introduction from Trick Dempsey, Expert Game Designer, about one of the key changes from the next update: the Specialization Revamp. Stay tuned to know more about the future ones!
At the end of Season 7 in December, we will be organizing an in-game event, reintroducing some player-favourite global events, associated with new rewards and an apparel event. We will reveal more information about this event closer to its availability date.
Last but not least, the reveal of the new Season and its associated content, including the new game mode, will happen in January 2022. We can't wait to tell you more about the whole content of this update! To make sure we are building the best experience, we will also organise a dedicated PTS period on PC to collect your feedback and help us put the finishing touches before the release.
This is all for today agents, we are looking forward to bringing these changes and many others to keep on improving the core experience of The Division 2.
Keep an eye out for future news and more details with our next Intelligence Annex episode releasing this Thursday!
Until next time!
