The Division Reportedly Suffers From Memory Leak Issues On PC

Tom Clancy’s The Division is available since March 8th for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. While Ubisoft is still providing post-launch support for the game with weekly server and game updates, they seem to have ignored one critical bug in the PC version of the game.

As seen in a huge thread on reddit and official Ubisoft support forum, the game apparently suffers from memory leak on PC which results in choppy frame rate and performance after an extended period of playing the game.

If you are currently playing The Division on PC and suddenly start to hear the audio getting glitched or the game’s frame rate stuttering after playing it for a while, you might be a victim of this memory leak.

As it stands, there is no way to counter this issue except closing the game and then starting it again. Users have also tried to disable VOIP since it was suggested that it helps in resolving the memory leak, but it hasn’t been the case so far. If you want to try it as last resort, you can also disable VOIP in the game and hope this resolves the memory leak, even if temporarily.

Ubisoft has yet to officially comment on this problem. Hopefully they can resolve this issue in a future update on PC.

Tom Clancy’s The Division is available now for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

    I was experiencing this on Windows 10. Downgrading my NVIDIA drivers from the latest (364.51) to 362.00 fixed it for me. I am running a stock 980 and last chipset i-5. Your mileage may vary.
