According to the post, game servers will shut down for maintenance to fix a few issues that have been plaguing the game since its last update and DLC release. Gamers are asked to follow the thread for more updates.

  • Deployment of Content Update 1.3 for all PlayStation 4 players. This does not enable the content of Expansion I: Underground which is scheduled for release on August 2nd.
  • Fixed a bug where High Value Target NPCs were capped at level 30 maximum. This will also fix the issue where they were not dropping any Target Intel.
  • Fixed a bug where players that died after defeating the final encounter would be able to repeat it and gain loots again.
  • Fixed instances of server instability that could lead to players being disconnected from the game.

The recent 1.3 patch of The Division has been riddled with a few bugs and glitches. Players are reporting that certain features have stopped working after the update, including the display of enemies within the player’s range. Ubisoft has already acknowledged the problem, according to Game Rant.
