In a bit of a surprise move, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 will be getting support for 60 frames per second (FPS) gameplay when played in 4K resolution on an Xbox Series X or S console in an update scheduled for release on February 2nd 2021.
The game currently supports 30 FPS in 4K on the Xbox One X and on the new gen Xbox Series X and S consoles. This update is not expected to add any additional features or improvements for the new consoles and is apparently being thought of purely as a means to add 60 FPS for those that want it (via WCCFT). This means that players shouldn’t expect any other major changes such as raytracing, at least not anytime soon.
The Division 2 launched on Microsoft’s Xbox One consoles back in March of 2019 and is now also playable on the new Xbox Series S and X consoles via backwards compatibility. A major update to the game, The Warlords of New York, rolled out earlier this year and added a variety of new story content, missions, weapons, and other changes meant to extend the title’s shelf life. Several other updates have launched since with even more content and refinements.
