Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment’s The Division 2 released back on March 8, 2016, the anticipated title received generally positive reviews due to its predecessor’s success, praised for its tight and satisfying gameplay by Destructoid.
The Division 2 came with a robust Year 1 content roadmap starting with Invasion: Battle for D.C., which introduced the game’s first 8 men Raid, three new specializations, and a further three expansions that added more narrative and content.
Year 2 content saw a new map and multi-tier world system introduced, in the way of Warlords of New York, which tasked the player with taking down a rogue Division cell and rewarding the player with new unique skills and battle pass for unlockables.
Fans assumed earlier in the year that update 12, which released in December last year and added a lot of being content, particularly for those who have the latest DLC, would be the last content update for the title, would be the last major update titled End of watch it is easy to see why that assumption was reached, Ubisoft, however, announced on February 13 that even though they are hard at work on the new open-world Star Wars game, more content was on the horizon for The Division 2.
In a social media post on Twitter and Reddit Massive started that the plans for Division 2 had changed, whereas the original plan was that update 12 would be the last content update for the title, the studio has decided to reverse course.
