The Division 2's second raid gets filibustered into 2020


But Title Update 6 is right around the corner

The Division 2's first stab at a raid didn't go entirely smoothly. The player base was (literally) divided because Ubisoft insisted on preventing matchmaking for people who couldn't put together a full eight-person squad. Also, the raid was nearly impossible on consoles. Ubisoft eventually addressed both of these problems.

Ubisoft doesn't want a repeat performance with its second raid. Originally scheduled to launch before the end of the year, the second raid has been pushed back into 2020. Ubisoft says "The extra time for our teams will help ensure the second raid not only meets our standards, but yours as well."

There is new content on the horizon, however. Title Update 6 goes live next week, which brings Episode 2 of the free main mission story DLC. In Pentagon: The Last Castle, players are tasked with purging the Black Tusk from the Pentagon.

Title Update 6 also introduces the Technician specialization class, whose signature weapon is a multi-missile launcher. Additionally, the update addresses major game changes like: allowing players to target specific loot they're looking for, increasing build diversity, tweaking crafting and recalibration, overhauling inventory management, granting players more stash space and upping the limit on materials that can be carried, and changing how the Dark Zone works.

Everyone will eventually get access to Title Update 6, but not at the same time. People who own the Year 1 Pass get everything on October 15. Everyone else has to wait a week until October 22. And the entirety of the Division 2 population has to wait until 2020 to grind through the new raid.
