The Division 2 will re-run previous Year 2 seasons

Ubisoft /

As Ubisoft previously announced, new content is in development for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. Unfortunately, work on this new content is still very early in development and the next major update likely won’t arrive until late 2021 at the earliest.

To keep players engaged and help hold them over until this new content arrives, Ubisoft will be re-running previous seasons that were released during Year 2 of the game. Seasons were introduced in Year 2 for those who owned the Warlords of New York expansion. Each season ran for three months and featured a narrative manhunt target, Global and League events, apparel events, and a season pass with rewards exclusive to that season.

Season 4, which was originally supposed to be the game’s last, just wrapped up. Players had to track down and neutralize Faye Lau.

Outlining the roadmap for the next few months, Ubisoft confirmed that Season 5 will be a re-run of Season 1. Presumably, Season 6 will be a re-run of Season 2 and so on until the next major update is finally ready and released.

As someone who took a long break from the game and only returned last month, I missed out on the previous three seasons. So Ubisoft using this time to re-run these seasons is the perfect way for me, and others like me, to experience these past manhunts and collect the rewards and collectibles I missed out on originally.

Seasons involve a main primary target, but to get to them, you first had to hunt down their associated rogue agents. When the seasons first went live, a new rogue agent would become activated every couple of weeks. This artificially extended the length of the season.

Now that every season has already run its course, will Season 5 still release the Season 1 content on a weekly basis, or will all of the rogue agents be available to hunt down immediately at the start? I guess it depends on how much time Ubisoft needs to fill.

In addition to re-running seasons, The Division 2 will continue to see new Apparel Events and minor Title Updates “focused on game health.”
