Massive Entertainment held another State of the Game for The Division 2 and players don't seem to be too stoked about what they've seen. One of the reasons is the lack of tangible information on the second raid.

The Division 2 is in a rough spot right now, with players having a hard time finding joy in playing the game. There are several reasons for the state of Division 2 but one is often seen in live service titles while also being the surefire way to get negative feedback - the lack of new content.

Technically, the Warlords of New York expansion is still fresh but players don't seem to be having much fun with it. The predominant reason here is that Massive are still mostly silent about the new raid and the latest State of the Game was no different.

To be fair, the developers didn't entirely dodge the topic and spoke about some things connected to the raid. For example, it is still tied to Spring 2020 release window. On the other hand, it is not necessarily coming with the title update that is planned for June 2020.

The raid will also be announced ahead of time so the players can prepare and gear up apparently. One would think that announcing such addition is common practice but Massive still felt compelled to underline it. Another bit of related info is that there will not be major balance changes in the patch the raid release so the players can be familiar with the game at time it drops.

While we spent two paragraphs paraphrasing the words from Massive Entertainment, it is not hard to see that there are many words but no much actual information involved, since all of it can be boiled down to "it will arrive at some point and you will be notified".

Judging by the response to the State of the Game discussion on Reddit, the players don't have much patience left and it's hard to blame them - it was originally planned for October 2019 and here we are half a year later with not much to go on.
