The Division 2 got its latest update today, July 6. Despite only containing a small list of fixes, the maintenance took approximately four hours before players were able to return to the game.

- Fixed an issue where the menu would not appear when inspecting people in Countdown menu.

The next major update for The Division 2 will be Title Update 16 which is due to be introduced onto PTS in August alongside Season 10.
