Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is nearly here, and less than a week until it launches, Ubisoft has confirmed the install size to some very unhappy Division fans.
In an FAQ, Ubisoft writes: “The Division 2 will be releasing on PC, Xbox One and PS4 alongside a Title Update 1 patch. This patch includes various bug fixes and improvements for the main game…[for Xbox One and PC] expect a 48-52 GB download, depending on your region and preferred language…[for PS4] Expect a 88-92 GB download, depending on your region and preferred language.”
Although the game won’t release until March 15th, there’s also going to be a 2GB update called Title Update 1.5, which you can download from March 11th.
Ubisoft writes: “[the] Title Update 1.5 mainly addresses occurrences of audio missing or cutting out experienced by some during Open Beta.
“Players who already have the Private Beta or the Open Beta builds installed on their platform would have to download the full game. You can clear some space on your system by deleting these previous builds.”
Happy Sunday! The day one patch is not already downloaded. From the following FAQ: “Starting March 11, you will be prompted to download and install Title Update 1.5; expect about 2 GB in download, depending on your platform, region and preferred language.” https://t.co/s57dk6SygI

Naturally, people are pretty upset and angry at the reveal of the patch – especially PlayStation 4 gamers.
Division 2: Looks like it could be good
Me: Ok might buy it
Division 2: 90 gb patch on release day

WTF?! Day one patch for The Division 2 on PS4 is 90 gb! Guess that means there’ll be a few not getting to play on day one then…

The Division 2s 50 GB patch is insane. I don’t understand why they just put most of the patch on the disk to make it small or do what Red Dead 2 did have it on two disks. Since the game it’s going to be 100gb with the patch installed.

With lots of recent games topping out at around 90-100GB at launch with patches, it looks like this is the new norm for gaming. Will you be picking up The Division 2?
