If you’re looking forward to diving into the next chapter of Tom Clancy’s The Division, then you’re probably curious to know what time The Division 2 releases. Thankfully, we’ve got all the information you need to know, so you can plan to dive in and start saving the world again.


What time does The Division 2 release?

The Division 2 is currently slated for a release this Friday, March 15. However, some players will have access to the game a few days early. In fact, early access for The Division 2 will kick off at midnight local time on March 12. This will give players roughly three extra days to play the game.

By releasing at midnight local time, countries on the eastern side of the world will find themselves able to dive in much sooner. In fact, we’ve even seen some reports of users on the western side of the world being able to boot up and play the game already as well.
