Yesterday's update for The Division is causing problems for many players who are reporting that their characters are being wiped.

A massive update was released for The Division yesterday, adding its first Incursion and some new features. But it’s also causing problems for some players who have found that their characters are being wiped.

The issue is being reported by players on Reddit and it seems to only be affecting those on Xbox One. It seemingly happens after players log off and get a Delta or Mike error.

The Division’s Twitter account says, “Please note that the missing character issue will require further investigation and will not be resolved with the upcoming hotfix.”

This update was supposed to add the game’s first Incursion – its equivalent of a Raid – the ability to swap weapons with other players, a new batch of loot, and supply drops in the Drop Zone. But it hasn’t gone so smoothly for many players.
