Massive Entertainment provided some information on the latest State of the Game, such as the new Exotic images and dates for new RNG, UI and recalibration. The release date for The Division 2 - Episode 3 is said to be 29 January 2020 but it's a bit ambiguous.

The Division 2 is overdue for some new content as players are getting restless due to lack of new content. Their woes should be temporarily dealt with when Episode 3 kicks in. It will bring more narrative-led content and the teaser leaves no room for doubt - we are going back to New York City. To be more precise, we are going to Coney Island and hunting for Aaron Keener.

As far as the actual release date of Episode 3 goes, it is somewhat dubious. The screenshot of the planned content that was shown several times during the State of the Game clearly said 29 January 2020 but the devs themselves kept saying it's coming in February.

There are two updates that are coming sooner than that, however. Item Stats, RNG and UI update will kick in on 15 January 2020 and is rather self-explanatory. It is aimed at the passionate players who just can't get those perfect rolls, no matter how many items they farm up.

One week later, on 22 January 2020, we will get the Recalibration and Skill Power update. Massive Entertainment didn't provide the exact nature of these changes but fans are speculating we might be going to the same skill power system that was present in the first game. This one is also causing worry as it might mean people will need to farm all over again for their loadouts.

On the bright side of news, there is the confirmation of the new Exotic weapon. It is apparently named Chameleon and it's a variation of the Kriss Vector. The weapon changes its colour scheme depending on the surface the agent is standing on but not much else is known about it.

The new specialisation is going to be revealed soon but the verbal teaser is all we got this time around. Unfortunately, the new raid will not be released with Title Update 7 / Episode 3 but a fix for the shotgun issues in Dark Zone will. On the topic of raids, the post activity report shows wrong info at the moment and it might go away entirely until Massive fix it.

In case you are happy with throwing your money at loot boxes, there is the new type of apparel cache that will not have duplicates. It has the same items as the regular apparel cache and can only be purchased with premium currency.
