Following the game’s release last week, the shooter was hit by big server outage, preventing players from playing the game. The upcoming maintenance however, is intentional and if Ubisoft is correct, the servers should be back up at 11:59AM CET on Tuesday, March 15.
The Division is out now for Xbox One, PC, and PS4. Since its release the game is breaking Ubisoft records. According Ubisoft, the game has already sold more copies in its first 24 hours than any game in Ubisoft’s history. Furthermore, the game also set a new digital full-game sales record across Xbox One, PC, and PS4.
“The launch of The Division is a tremendous achievement for Ubisoft, and demonstrates our unrivaled capacity to create fantastic new game brands and transform them into entertainment blockbusters,” said Yves Guillemot, co-founder and CEO, Ubisoft. “This is a momentous day for Ubisoft, but more importantly, it marks the start of millions of players’ enduring engagement in The Division’s game world, which we are confident they will love.”
