Fans of The Division 2 will have to wait a bit longer for the extremely hyped 8-player raid. Originally set for April 25th, Ubisoft announced that all changes coming in the upcoming update, including the raid, will be pushed to sometime in May. Ubisoft had this to say about the delay:
The final release date of Title Update 3 will be based on results from further testing and balancing of the game. Operation Dark Hours will be your biggest challenge to date, and we want to make sure that we’ve properly tested the large amount of balance changes that are coming to both PvE and PvP and listen to your feedback about the changes before introducing the raid.
This is a large disappointment for those who have reached max level in The Division 2. The game still has plenty to sink your teeth into for the time being, but clearly, Ubisoft wants to make sure that the raid is challenging but fair for those who have stuck around to play the ultra-challenging event. A game as a live service lives and dies by its endgame, which The Division 2 boasts an impressive amount to do upon reaching power level. With the game is constantly updated, developer Massive has struggled to fine-tune the game to a point close to perfection yet, so hopefully, through this update, they will have the time and resources to get The Division 2 in tip-top shape before the raid.
In the meantime, Ubisoft is asking for the assistance of PC players to iron out a few of these issues. PC players can jump into The Division 2 Public Test Server which has some of the new changes already implemented. This allows Ubisoft to see how their changes affect the game and tweak before it goes live to the rest of the community!
