Ubisoft's The Division 2 Servers Buckle Under Release Of New Raid

Some folks are getting in, but many are watching a wait message.

The first boss of the new raid in The Division 2 looks to be the load screen. Servers went live today, and immediately groups were met with "waiting for server" messages.

Players are reporting waiting anywhere from 20-50 minutes for the raid to start after assembling their group. Others have reported issues like starting with too few players. Ubisoft posted an update to The Division 2 Twitter account, saying it is "looking into reports that players are waiting a long time for raid servers to be available" and are increasing the available number of servers.

This is part of an ongoing frustration with raid felt from The Division 2's playerbase. This is an evolving game and part of Ubisoft's ongoing plans for content drops over time to keep players engaged.

After news that the raid would not have matchmaking, making it difficult for the lone wolves out there to play the endgame content, Ubisoft responded with a video promising coming changes.

Anecdotally, streamers like KingGothalion have made it in to play the raid content already and compete for world's first. We'll update once we've heard more from Ubisoft.
