'The Division' Release Date, Latest News & Update: Public Test Pushed Back Following DLC Delays

Disappointing news for fans of Ubisoft's "The Division," as the Public Test Server that was scheduled for Thursday isn't pushing through. The studio released a statement on their official game forum to share the sad news.

According to IGN, Ubisoft's "The Division" Public Test Server will not be arriving this Thursday as scheduled because the studio needed "more time to include key elements that are critical to the overall Update 1.4 experience." It seems that the Public Test Server is temporarily canceled, as the studio did not indicate when they would release it at a later date.

Moreover, Gamerant reports that the arrival of the Special Report Update 1.4 for "The Division" will be delayed as well. The update was supposedly arriving today, but the company has decided to postpone the release, citing that they don't have the capability to release such content at the moment.

Ubisoft Massive, however, has confirmed that they are pushing through with the weekly State of the Game briefing happening later this week. Fans can expect more information on "The Division" during the livestream.

Last month, the studio also announced that the latest DLC for "The Division" titled "Surivival" will be pushed back to an unknown date later this year. The third DLC, which will be titled "Last Stand" also saw a delay and will be released in the first part of 2017 instead of its original arrival later this year.

Right now, it seems that Ubisoft is hard at work to meet the deadlines they've set for themselves in order to get more "The Division" content into gamers' consoles all over the world.
