Publisher and developer Ubisoft officially announces the servers for its popular action-MMO, The Division, go down tomorrow, April 5, for three hours of maintenance.
As has been the case with The Division every week up to this point, the third-person shooter‘s servers are to go down for weekly maintenance on Tuesday morning, with tomorrow’s repairs being scheduled for about three hours. Starting at 9:00 AM CEST, 3:00 AM EDT, and 12:00 AM PDT, fans of The Division will have to wait for developers to work out some of the kinks in the system before their Agents can get back to policing the streets of a post-pandemic New York City.
Although Ubisoft confirmed the downtime in order to give The Division players an advance warning to prepare, the video game publisher and developer didn’t release any additional details regarding what issues would be addressed during the repairs, as has been the case with previous bouts of server maintenance. With that in mind, there’s no telling if fans should expect any changes to be made to the title other than the standard fix of bugs and glitches.
Of course, it’s entirely possible that The Division developers will be preparing the servers for the game’s April update, which is set to provide its first raid, Dark Zone supply drops, and much more starting next week. Should that be the case, three hours’ time will hopefully be big enough of a block to prepare the game’s servers for the undoubtedly huge influx of fans that will take part in the action next week.
Furthermore, the developers of The Division are likely hard at work putting together a definitive version of the game’s login bug fix, which had been plaguing players since its inception, preventing many fans from signing into the action-MMO. Taking into account the fact that devs are shooting for April 12 as its availability in the next client update, tomorrow’s server maintenance could be key in making the patch more potent.
In any event, with The Division‘s servers going down tomorrow for maintenance, there ought to be plenty of players who will go on to use their spare time to craft fan-made materials related to the game, such as the gamer who created a real-world New York overlay map, comparing the military shooter’s dimensions to that of the city on which it’s based. Naturally, though, considering the actual hours allotted for The Division‘s server maintenance, the majority of would-be Agents will probably be catching up on their sleep.
