Tomorrow The Division 2’s first raid, The Dark Hours, launches. The raid, which requires eight people with high gear scores to complete, has the game’s community excited for the first massive operation.
However, if you’ve been playing through the Division 2 with random players via the matchmaking option, you might find yourself in for a bit of a surprise when you try to take on the raid. The Dark Hours has no matchmaking option, which means the onus is on you and your pals to wrangle up a group of eight players yourself.
Players have complained about the notice and Ubisoft has acknowledged those complaints…kind of. The Division 2’s marketing team says that response about why the raid doesn’t have a matchmaking function is on the way:
About the matchmaking topic for #TheDivision2 Raid: give me a bit of time to circle back with the @UbiMassive team and we’ll get you a full overview and explanation.

It’s worth noting that fellow looter shooter Destiny 2 doesn’t have a matchmaking system for its raids either.
