Two steps forward, two steps back. That seems to be the trend with Ubisoft’s The Division since launch.

The latest update 1.2/Conflict, introduced some new PVE content in the form of the Clear Sky Incursion, as well as easier to obtain high-end items.

Two steps forward.

Following the update, players began to report that some NPC characters, as well as their own characters, had disappeared from the game entirely. Ubisoft announced it was working on a fix, but no further details have come forward as it appeared to be small, isolated incidents.

Today the development team encountered more issues related to an “unsuccessful patch”. Due to the unsuccessful patch, the latest update due to arrive today has been delayed. Additionally, the new Challenge Mode for The Division’s Clear Sky Incursion is also being delayed.

“Prior to deployment, it has been found that the patch was unsuccessful and has been delayed. As such, today’s maintenance will finish early (approximately 12pm CEST),” Ubisoft said on the games forums.

“This also means that the deployment of the Clear Sky Challenge Mode has been delayed for the time being as well,” Ubisoft said.

In the latest “State of the Game” broadcast from Ubisoft, the developers explained how they found some bugs in the Clear Sky Incursion that could lead to exploits.

Ubisoft went on to thank fans for their patience and promised the patch will arrive, along with details about what’s contained within it, “as soon as we can.”

Additionally, it appears the Xbox One version of The Division is facing some kind of “double UI” problem right now. Ubisoft is deploying a fix for this very soon.

Two steps back.
