According to the official Ubisoft support page, the Division 2 Beta MIKE error is “related to the game not being able to access your profile.” Essentially, the error message will crop up when the game fails to recognize your profile. This will manifest itself by kicking you out of the game, giving you the MIKE error message.

It’s unknown why the game can’t access your profile, but, at least there is a fix for the MIKE error. It’s simple, too, but does come with a little word of warning.

Before either Ubisoft or Massive Entertainment release a patch that stops The Division 2 Beta failing to access profiles, there is a quick fix for the MIKE error. As per the Ubisoft support page linked to above, the fix is simple enough to achieve.

“If you have been disconnected and receive a MIKE error when trying to reconnect, the game is simply trying to recover your profile.” If this happens to you, exit the game and try to start it again in five-to-ten minutes. Waiting this long should work, but if it doesn’t, give the game up to 30 minutes to find your profile again and let you log back in.

On top of this, however, you might receive a message declaring that “Your progression might be lost.” Don’t worry too much about this message, however, as The Division 2 Beta should “recover the latest working profile,” which may result in progress losses of up to ten minutes. If you do lose any progress thanks to MIKE, it shouldn’t be too much, thankfully.

Remember, too, that if you create another character or play as a different one, you should be able to head straight back into the game. MIKE error or no.
