In a lengthy and detailed post, Ubisoft has stated its ongoing plans for The Division 2. The overall aim, according to the developer, is to 'share not only updates on present issues but also contextualize some of our design decisions.'

Some of the planned patches for the incoming 2.1 update are detailed below:

Project exploit:

  • Projects were deactivated over the weekend in response to issues.
  • We applied a fix on Monday, April 8th and re-activated the projects without the need of a maintenance!

We will have an additional patch next week, Patch 2.1 which will include the following changes:

Crafting Bench

  • We have a fix for the bench not upgrading to World Tier 5 in the works.
  • This will also fix the issue for players that have their crafting bench stuck in different World Tiers.

Characters getting stuck

  • We are trying to reproduce this internally. If you have more information on the topic, please share it with us (e.g. if you’re experiencing high latency).
  • We have one fix for players getting stuck in the revive animation.

Revive Hive

  • Made first improvements with TU2.
  • Another fix incoming to reduce more occurrences in 2.1.
  • We'll apply more fixes in the future as needed.

True Patriot

  • Fix coming to address the two-piece gear set bonus of True Patriot not working.

The patch was finally implemented a couple of hours earlier, and here are the notes regarding it:

  • Fixed not being able to fast travel to the Castle settlement.
  • Fixed several cases of abnormal Bounty boss skill-use behaviour.
  • Fixed an issue causing the Nemesis crafting materials to be unobtainable.
  • Fixed Delta-03 error occurring at the end of Conflict matches.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause the pathfinding line to behave abnormally when in close proximity to your destination.
  • Fixed the “donating” sound playing repeatedly after having donated and abandoned a daily mission.
  • Fixed an issue related to cache countdown timers.
  • Fixed an issue where Specialization ammunition drop rate was lower than intended

Long term, Ubisoft has stated that they have a lot of issues they are looking into and currently working on, and one of them is PC performance, as players on that platform will be overjoyed to know. In the meantime, Nvidia is said to be providing drivers in the future which should help with the prevalent DirectX 12 crashes.
