Developers Couldn't Update 'The Division 2' Because a Delayed Update Broke Their Updater
Sunday February 12, 2023. 09:34 PM , from Slashdot
'Never before have I seen live service game development summarized so well,' quips GamesRadar, summarizing an official tweet Thursday about the game Tom Clancy's The Division 2.
The developers basically had tweeted that The Division 2 'cannot be updated because a recently-delayed seasonal update broke the system used to update the game, so the developers trying to update it have to first update the updater to accept new updates.
'So that they can update it.'
To recap: the fix for an error that delayed an update resulted in an error that broke the updater which would deliver that update to The Division 2. Consequently, the devs 'are unable to make server or client side updates until the build generation system is restored,' meaning they can't even extend existing seasonal content to help fill the gap between updates.
'We have good news!' the developers tweeted in an update Friday. 'We have successfully created and deployed a server-side update. This is now live and extends Season 10 content. We deeply appreciate your support and patience!'
